    Unusual Annular 1852 Gold Dollar Pattern
    Copper-Nickel, Judd-140, PR64

    1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-140, Pollock-167, Low R.7, PR64 NGC.
    Design.
    The simple obverse design consists of the legend USA above and 1852 below. The reverse features a circle of olive sprigs. Struck on an annular copper-nickel planchet with a plain edge.

    Commentary.
    The USPatterns.com website makes note of the fact that the silver version of this design--Judd-138--is struck over an 1860 Seated Liberty dime, clearly confirming the long-standing belief that these issues are restrikes prepared by Mint employees for sale to collectors. They were probably produced in 1860 or perhaps shortly thereafter. It is not known if these patterns were perforated before or after striking, although the latter is most likely due to technical limitations at that time. An early appearance was in the Parmelee Sale (New York Coin & Stamp, 6/1890), lot 58, where it was sold together with an example of Judd-138.
