Description & Analysis

In his still-valuable 1980 reference, David Akers writes of the 1852 eagle, 'The mintage of the 1852 is fairly high by No Motto Eagle standards and almost identical to that of the 1851-O which is only a moderately scarce date. However, the 1852 is very scarce in all grades and rare in AU condition. In full mint state it is very rare and I have seen only two uncirculated examples that I called 'choice' along with three or four others of average (bagmarked) quality. The 1852 is similar in overall rarity to the 1848 and more rare than the 1847, 1847-O, 1849, 1850, 1851-O and 1853. It is certainly not the 'common date' type coin the mintage and the standard pricing guides would lead one to believe.'

More recently Garrett and Guth, in their 2006 gold Encyclopedia, note that 'the 1852 eagle is a relatively common date, but nowhere near as common as the mintage indicates. For instance, the population (all major services combined) of the 1852 is only 699 coins versus over 1,000 for the 1851-O--yet the two dates have nearly identical mintages. Extremely Fine and AU coins are scarce, and Mint State examples are downright rare.?

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
