Description & Analysis

Much like the restrike 1851 Seated Dollar, the restrike 1852 was produced solely for the benefit of collectors. Most, if not all of these coins were produced circa 1858-1860 from the same obverse die that the Mint used to strike the originals. There is a considerable amount of confusion regarding the status of originals and restrikes, and Bowers' 1993 Silver Dollar encyclopedia is riddled with inconsistencies and speculation. For example, the author lists three reverse dies for originals and a further three reverse dies for restrikes--a rather high total for a proof issue with so few coins extant. He does admit, however, that the likelihood of there being six different reverse dies for proofs of this date is virtually nonexistent.
