Description

    1852 Gold Dollar Pattern
    Struck in Copper-Nickel
    Famous 'Ring' Design, Judd-148, PR66

    1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-148, Pollock-176, R.7, PR66 NGC. CAC.
    Design. 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.

    Commentary. 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.

    Physical Description. The obverse design elements of this attractive Premium Gem are sharply detailed and show just a touch of softness on the lower wreath on the reverse. The pristine surfaces display an even copper-gold color, with bright satiny mint luster on both sides. The eye appeal is outstanding. Census: 2 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (3/13).
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 299F, PCGS# 11614)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
