Description & Analysis

The certified census number reveal that this is a fairly common issue even in the higher grades. Most examples, however, were coined from worn or refinished dies that have missing or very shallow details.

Several repunched mintmark varieties are noted for 1952-S, but these are minor and of interest only to specialists.
