Description

Lustrous, Original 1852-D Half Eagle MS63 NGC, Tied For the Finest Known

1852-D $5 MS63 NGC. Ex: Ashland City. Variety 28-U (per Doug Winter's second edition and revised attribution system), the scarcest of the three varieties known for this issue. Among Dahlonega Half Eagles, the 1852-D has the second largest mintage with 91,584 pieces struck. As a result, examples are readily available up to and including the AU 50 level. Choice About Uncirculated specimens are, however, quite scarce and the present Mint State representative qualifies as upper-end Condition Census or possibly finest known, with this the sole example graded MS63 at NGC, along with only two others at PCGS, and none finer at either service to date (1/04).. The striking details are a bit softly defined, as usually found on examples of this issue. However, the surfaces have rich orange-gold coloration with a slight accent of lilac over the figure of Liberty. Lightly abraded overall, with an insubstantial pinscratch running horizontally through the left obverse field and Liberty's cheek, and with two small planchet flakes in the field by star 12.
Ex: Ashland City Collection (Heritage, 1/03), lot 4780, where it realized $19,550; Chestatee Collection/1999 ANA (Heritage, 8/99), lot 7690, where it realized $10,063. (#8252) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25UC, PCGS# 8252)
