Description & Analysis

This is a common date that was widely hoarded for entirely non-numismatic reasons. In 1852 the half dime was worth more than five cents as reckoned in gold, so the coins were stored as bullion or exported for melting and probable recoining as some other nation's money. Due to this unusual history, Mint State survivors exist in greater proportion to circulated pieces than is normal for old coins.
