Description & Analysis

The 1852 proof silver dollar is an issue that has prompted a great deal of study with respect to which are originals and which are later restrikes. Osburn and Cushing estimate that five or fewer of the former were produced, with about 65 restrikes having been minted. They identify their die marriage OC-P1 as the only one to have been used for proofs struck during 1852, as it features the proof reverse die used for all dates but two during the period 1840-54. This is a reasonable conclusion, though with just three examples of this marriage confirmed there has been a lot of confusion and mislabeling between originals and restrikes. For that reason NGC discontinued making this distinction some years ago.

Of the coins believed to be restrikes, perhaps 40 or so are known today. These feature the same obverse die as the OC-P1 marriage, but with two different reverses found on proofs dated 1856-58 and 1859, respectively. A fourth die marriage was reported in the Bowers 1993 reference book but was not confirmed by Osburn and Cushing.

Gems of this issue are very rare, though most 1852 proof silver dollars will display some degree of Cameo contrast, albeit hidden under toning in some instances.

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.
