Description & Analysis

The certified census number reveal that this is a fairly common issue even in the higher grades. Most examples, however, were coined from worn or refinished dies that have missing or very shallow details. Despite its spotting, the coin illustrated has a fairly good obverse strike, yet the shallowness described above is evident in the lettering and wheat stems of the reverse.

Several repunched mintmark varieties are noted for 1952-S, but these are minor and of interest only to specialists.
