Description:
1852-C Gold Dollar, MS63
Well-Struck Obverse
1852-C G$1 MS63 NGC. Variety 2. Repunching is prominent on the 1 in the date. This variety, showing the repunching, also shows a "mint-made planchet imperfection" (Winter's terminology, although it is obviously a die defect), a weakly struck area on the coins caused by some object blocking part of the die. The weakness begins at the right side of the large 1 in the denomination and moves down into a triangular shape at the LA. which is virtually effaced on this Select piece. On the other hand, the obverse of this coin is far better-struck than most examples, with good detailing on the hair below the coronet, and only minor weakness on the hairbun and some of the rear curls. A shallow obverse planchet lamination appears in the field before the neck. This piece displays generous luster over bright yellow-gold surfaces. Despite the tiny mintage of 9,434 pieces, the 1852-C is more available than might be surmised; Doug Winter writes that he suspects a hoard may have existed at one time. Census: 12 in 63, 12 finer (10/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25BR, PCGS# 7518)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
