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.

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. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
