    1852 Ring Dollar in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-148, PR65

    1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-148, Pollock-176, Low R.7 PR65 PCGS. 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. 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. The surfaces are bright honey-tan color with a speckling of carbon on each side.
