1845-O Liberty Head Eagle. Winter-6. Repunched Date. AU-58 (NGC). Plenty of satin to modestly semi-reflective luster remains to tempt the advanced collector of Liberty Head or New Orleans Mint gold coinage. Dominant golden-orange patina with intermingled light olive highlights evident as the surfaces rotate under a light. The 1845-O is one of the scarcer New Orleans Mint eagles from the 1840s, although a small hoard that surfaced during the early 1990s has made the issue somewhat available in the EF-45 to AU-53 grade range. Any finer and the 1845-O remains rare. This issue is also popular with specialists due to the existence of several Repunched and Misplaced Date varieties, as here.
