Description

1852 Gold Dollar Pattern
Struck in Copper-Nickel
Famous 'Ring' Design, Judd-148, PR66

1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-148, Pollock-176, R.7, PR66 NGC. CAC.
Design. The obverse features a line design, described as a circle of six bows by early catalogers, around the central perforation. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, with 1852 below. The reverse consists of the denomination DOLLAR above, and an open wreath below. Struck on an annular copper-nickel planchet with a plain edge.

Commentary. As seen above, the annular design was intended to increase the diameter of the coin without adding gold, thus making it less likely to be lost in purses and pockets. Judd-148 features a more intricate design than most of the "Ring" dollars; USPatterns.com suggests some of these issues are restrikes from the late 1850s. Fewer than a dozen examples of Judd-148 are believed extant.

Physical Description. The obverse design elements of this attractive Premium Gem are sharply detailed and show just a touch of softness on the lower wreath on the reverse. The pristine surfaces display an even copper-gold color, with bright satiny mint luster on both sides. The eye appeal is outstanding. Census: 2 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 299F, PCGS# 11614)
