Description:
Near-Gem 1852-C Gold Dollar, Variety 2
Condition Census Example
1852-C G$1 MS64 NGC. Variety 2. The 18 in the date is lightly repunched south, and clash marks are noted near the coronet tip and the left wreath stem. The strike is well-impressed for a Southern branch mint product, particularly on the curls near Liberty's ear. As seen on many gold dollars, the peripheries display cartwheel luster, while the open fields are moderately prooflike. There are three small patches of roughness on the obverse as made; this is not uncommon on this issue, which is known for poor die preparation. On the reverse, there is a shallow die defect from the right side of the 1 in the denomination down to the right side of the second L and the left side of the A in DOLLAR. This is found on about half of all known 1852-C dollars. Despite this defect, the date is still full and the strike is sharper than seen on many examples. Although the Charlotte Mint struck 72,574 half eagles in 1852, their emission of gold dollars was substantially smaller. A mere 9,434 pieces were struck, and of that amount probably only 80-85 pieces are extant today in all grades. This is a nice looking coin that qualifies as a lower-end Condition Census example.
Around two to three dozen Uncirculated 1852-C dollars are known. This is the second most available Charlotte gold dollar in high grades, but it is still many times scarcer than the 1851-C. The finest example we know of aware is an MS66 NGC, ex: Heritage (1/2000), lot 7555. There are at least five separate coins graded MS65 by NGC.
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2006), lot 3017; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 3351, where it sold for $16,100.
