1852 Annular Dollar in Copper-Nickel
1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-140, Pollock-167, Low R.7, PR63
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. One of the proposed solutions to the problem
of the undersized and easily lost gold dollar was an annular
pattern. The large center perforation (as struck) and narrow margin
makes for a simple design. The obverse has only USA above the hole
with 1852 below, while the reverse has a series of laurel sprigs
amid heavy concentric die lines. Curiously, no denomination is
stated. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. About a dozen
copper-nickel pieces are known. Also struck in gold, silver,
copper, and nickel. The surfaces are moderately toned and there are
a few planchet voids on the obverse, seen especially to the left of
the S in USA and on the rim at 9 o'clock.
