Description & Analysis

The '52-O is the rarest Type One Gold Dollar after the 1850-O. While Winter's 1992 estimate of 19-20 coins extant in Mint State is probably no longer accurate, there can be no doubt that the 1852-O remains a conditionally challenging issue with a rapidly dwindling certified population above the MS62 level.
