1852-O Gold $1.00 NGC MS63

Mintage: 140,000

 

The 1852-O is considerably scarcer in Uncirculated than the 1849-O, 1851-O and 1853-O. It is not all that hard to find in the lower Uncirculated grades but it is rare in properly graded MS63 and very rare (and expensive) above this. This high end example has very choice frosty surfaces with nice light orange-gold color. The strike is very sharp with good detail at the centers; more-so on the obverse than on the reverse. A few tiny abrasions below the truncation narrowly keep this coin from grading MS64 but it is decidedly nicer than most I have seen in MS63 holders.
