This number is a composite.
The first (and through 2000, only) year in which the number of U.S. presidential electoral votes cast was a prime number for every vote getter. [Wolfe]
1848 is the smallest number that may be expressed as the difference between the squares of consecutive primes in three different ways (4632 - 4612 = 2332 - 2292 = 1572 - 1512). [King]
(There are 2 curios for this number that have not yet been approved by an editor.)
