Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: This date should be considered rare in any condition. Population numbers suggest that it is very similar in rarity to the 1854-D gold dollar (a fact noted by David Akers long before population reports). Relatively few Mint State examples have been certified, and they are seldom offered for sale. The average coin seen is Extremely Fine or About Uncirculated. The finest coin known of the date is the NGC MS 63 example from the Duke’s Creek Collection sold in April 2004 for $27,600. As a result of clashed or lapped dies, most examples feature defects on the obverse, particularly about the nose and forehead. Most coins also display die cracks on the reverse. The 1852-D gold dollar is a classic condition rarity, with no Gem examples known to exist.
