Description

    Near-Mint 1852-D Gold Dollar

    1852-D G$1 AU58 NGC. Variety 4-F, the only known variety. This low mintage issue of 6,360 pieces is surpassed by only the 1850-D and 1854-D in terms of overall rarity, among Type One gold dollars. This barely circulated representative appears to be from a similar die state to the example plated in Doug Winter's 1997 book Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint: 1838-1861. The bridge of Liberty's nose is incomplete from die polishing, and there are moderate to heavy clash marks in the left obverse field. Winter describes this as an intermediate die state. Bright yellow-gold color envelops both sides with a somewhat subdued appearance. There are some light and moderate abrasions scattered about, but the diagnostic die scratch (also as struck) in the reverse field after the A in AMERICA should not be confused with a post-production distraction.
