    Description

    1846-D/D Quarter Eagle, AU55
    Widely Repunched Mintmark

    1846-D/D $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 7-L. Although nearly identical to the 1845-D mintage, the 19,303-piece 1846-D production yields a greater number of survivors than the previous year. Examples in the upper About Uncirculated grades are scarce, and as expected, the Mint State rarity is profound. This is the popular 1846-D/D variety, with the ghostly upright of a widely mispunched D above 1 in the fraction, mostly effaced. The primary D mintmark sits far to the right, bumping the branch, its top serif buried in the feathers. Bright, medium-gold color displays greenish accents across lightly abraded surfaces. The 1846-D varieties are surprisingly numerous given the sub 20,000-piece mintage, with five die marriages including this impressive doubled mintmark variety. Census: 2 in 55, 1 finer (11/19).
