David Akers (1975/88): Like the 1845, the 1846 is a grossly underrated date in this most underrated U.S. coin series. It is not easy to locate an 1846 Eagle in any condition and almost all of the relatively few known specimens are only VF or EF. No uncirculated specimen has ever been auctioned and I have never seen one in that grade. In fact, I have only seen one that I graded AU. In my opinion, few other U.S. coins are as underrated and underappreciated for their true rarity as this one and most of those are also Liberty Head Eagles.
