    1852 Moffat & Co. Ten, XF45
    Close Date, K-8 Variety

    1852 $10 Moffat & Co. Ten Dollar XF45 NGC. K-8, R.6. The Close Date and 264 GRS. CALIFORNIA GOLD on the reverse identify the rare K-8 variety. These coins were produced by Moffat & Co. in January of 1852, after local merchants and bankers petitioned them to issue private gold coinage to relieve the shortage of circulating coinage in the region. The reported mintage was 8,650 pieces. The 264 GRS. on the reverse was in response to a statement by the Philadelphia Mint assayers that 264 grains of California gold would yield 10 dollars worth of bullion after refining.

    The present coin shows some friction on the design elements, but all important detail remains intact. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces retain traces of original mint luster and show a scattering of minor contact marks. Listed on page 382 of the 2014 Guide Book. Census: 4 in 45, 11 finer (4/14).
