    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)
