The tall date punch is easily recognized via a long thick flag on the 1 digit. It is well known that the 1846-O Tall Date is a challenging rarity in higher circulated grades and non existent in mint state. PCGS population report indicates only eight examples certified in all AU graded (AU50, AU53, AU55 and AU58) with only three in MS62. Therefore rarity at the AU grade level is established and verified. Now let's take a look at this AU50 example from the New Jersey Collection. This example is choice original with mirrored fields and bold reflective luster under a light sources. Surfaces are covered with light gray gold patina and are free of any blemishes. The primary devices, Liberty and reverse eagle, are nicely frosted throughout recesses. Strike is essentially complete with only a touch of weakness on the eagle's lower left left. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates to the late 1990s. A very important offering from the New Jersey Collection that warrants special consideration for grade rarity and strict originality.
