Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The Mintage for the 1852-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is substantially lower than in previous years from the Dahlonega Mint. Examples are truly rare in all grades, with the average coin seen being in Very Fine or Extremely Fine condition. A few MS 62 examples have been offered in the last couple of years, but this seems to be an exception. For many years there were very few nice collections of Southern gold offered for sale. The last couple of decades has seen the dispersal of several great collections, the Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection being one of the most complete. The sell-off of great collections has provided collectors with unique opportunities for acquisition that are seldom available. The finest known coin of the date is the NGC MS 64 example from the great Duke’s Creek Collection of Dahlonega gold. This coin sold for $57,500 in 2006.
