Description

    PCGS 1846 PR 63. It is unknown the exact production of proof specimens, but it is estimated by Breen that as many as 14 to 18 were struck, to a lower estimate of 10 to 12 by Blythe. Any proof U.S. issue in the 1840s is considered exceedingly rare as the mint had no program for public distribution of proofs until 1858. In short, you had to know someone to obtain one of these early proofs. The shield points directly to the upright of the 1 of the date, a diagnostic feature for the proof. The fields are deeply mirrored and all details are struck in razor sharp fashion indicating multiple blows by the coining press. Even the denticulation is fully defined on each side. Some natural, mottled gray toning is present, further attesting to the originality of this very rare coin. Population: 2 coins in PR 63, 1 finer. (NGC ID# 235E, PCGS# 4422)
