Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The mintage for the year would indicate that the 1852-C Liberty Head quarter eagle is a scarce issue. That is surely the case, as just a few examples are offered for sale each year. Most of the known coins are in the Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated range. Mint State coins are very rare and when available are probably on the low end of the scale. The finest example known at this point again seems to be a Harry W. Bass Jr. coin, which was certified as MS 63 and sold in 1999 for $26,450. Bass had a keen eye for quality, and when offered the opportunity would purchase a coin to upgrade a date that he already possessed. The date is found with the usual maladies common on Charlotte Mint gold coinage: weak strike, clashed dies, rough planchets.
