Description & Analysis

Most 1852-D gold dollars are worn to the point that little natural luster remains, and the higher grade examples that exist usually have a dull, grainy texture. The 1852-D is the sixth rarest Dahlonega gold dollar in terms of its overall rarity, and the eighth according to condition rarity. Around 100-125 pieces are known, with perhaps seven to nine of these grading Uncirculated by today's interpretations. Nearly all of these survivors are in the MS60 to MS61 range, and an MS63 is exceedingly rare.
