    1846/'5'-O Eagle, AU53
    So-Called Overdate Guide Book Listing

    1846/'5'-O $10 AU53 PCGS. Variety 4. This 1846-O eagle was struck from an obverse that was once believed to be overdated but is now recognized as being the result of a damaged date punch. The so-called 1846-O 5 Over 6, which is more common than than the normal 1846-O, is still erroneously listed in the Guide Book. This rare reverse variety has the mintmark placed over the space between (TE)N D. Definition is soft over the curls, upper stars, and the eagle's left leg and the fletchings. Partial luster shines from yellow-gold surfaces. Population: 8 in 53, 20 finer (6/20).(Registry values: N2998)
