Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: The 1853-C gold dollars were very poorly produced. The issue is often seen on weakly struck planchets. The central portions on the reverse near the date are nearly always obscured. Grading the 1853-C gold dollar can be tricky business. A Mint State coin, if one were to become available, would be graded more by the luster than by actual wear. Partially Prooflike examples of this date are also seen on occasion. Although the 1852-C and 1853-C are very similar in overall rarity, the 1853-C is much rarer in higher states of preservation. The finest graded to date is a single NGC MS 65 example. An MS 64 coin sold for $14,100 in January, 2014. There are two varieties known for the date, including one with the mintmark obviously re-punched.
