Description:
Magnificent Gem Proof 1846 Seated Dollar
1846 $1 PR65 PCGS. Breen-5436. The proof-only blundered date variety, which Breen describes as "date first entered much too low and oblique, then largely effaced and corrected; parts of upper halves of 846 show in lower halves of final position of date." The reverse displays the lumps on the central right border of the third A in AMERICA, diagnostic for the die used to strike most restrike proof No Motto Seated dollars.
Fully struck, gorgeously preserved, and originally patinated in deep shades of sea-green, golden-brown, and canary-gold. An exceptional Gem exceeded in third-party grade only by the Kaufman specimen from our recent Central States Signature.
