I was wondering how many collectors are interested in owning an 1846 O dollar with the rotated reverse? Does it matter to you or can you care less? If so does it command a premium?
Rotated dies on some coin are common such as some bust quarters. On other coins I’ve seen them bring a profit. I have seen the 46 O bring premiums. I think it’s a cool thing to have in a dollar collection, since there aren’t that many varieties. I feel it should bring a premium, especially when the coin is choice.
I would love to hear some opinions, especially from the hound 🐕!

I would think it would bring some sort of premium - not sure on the % increase, but definitely would add something (IMO).

Rotated reverses are cool, the more rotation the better. Anyone heard from the Hound Dog? 🐶

I would def pay more for a premium quality rotated reverse. There are crap coin rotated reverse or very low grade pieces that I think dont capture much premium, but for mid to upper grade and more importantly premium examples... Yes. I believe so. Depending on the piece, I would say 10-25% premiums would be in order.

I have an 1861 rotated reverse about 10-15%. I dont think there is much premium in that piece, but 40% rotated reverse I believe absolutely (which is typical of the 46o more scarce variety).

I think its pretty cool to own a coin with a rotated reverse . I think buck is right about them commanding a bit of a premium. sweet coin Dan....

Anymore thoughts from other members?
Anyone hear from the hound🐕? I’m going to report the hound as a missing hound? Maybe the computer, iPad and phone are all broken!

Did my friend say choice?  I wanted to share a coin I purchased from a good friend back in 1994. Although Miss Liberty's head is as smooth as a babies bottom she has a natural deep patina that I love. If you look at the lower right corner of the reverse you'll see a little bit of the slab label which reveals the rotated reverse.
