Description

1852 Gold Ring Dollar, Judd-145 Thin, PR66

1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-145 Thin, Pollock-173, Low R.6, PR66 PCGS. Simply designed with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the outer portion of the obverse with the date at the bottom. The reverse has DOLLAR at the top with a wreath around the lower margin. Struck in gold, perforated in the center, with a plain edge. This pattern design was an attempt to increase the diameter of the gold dollar denomination, which at 13 mm was easily lost and even smaller than the 14 mm three cent silver. Many of these pieces were struck from the late 1850s onward. They are also known in silver, copper, copper-nickel, and nickel (perhaps actually copper-nickel or German silver). The thin planchet pieces weigh about 25 grains and the thick planchet coins weigh around 32 grains.
As one would expect with a coin that has so little surface area, there are no mentionable abrasions on either side. The fields are deeply mirrored and show significant traces of die striations. Nicely reflective. The bright yellow-gold color shows just a trace of reddish patina.
From Anaconda Rare Coins. (NGC ID# 299B, PCGS# 11604)
