Description & Analysis

In 1852, Wass, Molitor and Co. struck five and ten-dollar pieces at their San Francisco assay office. The coins were meant to replace United States coinage, which was very scarce in the West at that time. Unfortunately, many ended up being melted and converted into Federal coinage. This attrition has made any piece from Wass, Molitor and Co. extremely rare and valuable today.

The Close and Wide Date examples were likely struck after the small head variety. This is evidenced by the fact that the date of the Small Head variety had to be altered from 1851 to 1852. This is the rarest of the three 1852 $10 varieties, as evidenced by the NGC population of 1. NGC has graded 40 Wide Date and 10 Small Head examples to date. (3/2018)
