    1846-O Seated Dollar, MS64
    Conditional Rarity With Enormous Eye Appeal

    1846-O $1 MS64 PCGS. CAC. The 1846-O Seated dollar issue was the first O-mint production in the six-year-old series at the time it was struck to the extent of only 59,000 coins, and it would be one of only four O-mint entries with the 1850-O, 1859-O, and 1860-O. Most of the 1846-O silver dollars circulated widely, and today certified survivors average no better than XF or Choice XF. The present MS64 PCGS example is a great rarity (and a great coin), one of four such submitted at that service with none finer (12/14). Generous luster and a razor-sharp strike already separate this piece from its cohort, as do the beautiful pastel wash of powder-gray accented with pale blue and citrine. Some random bits of die grease on the reverse bear mentioning but do little to defeat the enormous eye appeal. This is one of two in MS64 with the CAC green approval sticker.(Registry values: N7079)
