1852-O Liberty Eagle PCGS AU58

Lustrous, Semi-PL

With their energies directed mostly toward the production of double eagles, New Orleans Mint officials struck a paltry 18,000 ten-dollar gold coins in 1852. In 2006, Doug Winter, who called this issue “one of the rarest No Motto eagles,” estimated 80 to 90 coins survived in all, including two to four Uncirculated coins. Today, NGC shows two in Mint State (one in MS60 and one in MS61) on their population report, while PCGS shows one in MS60, with none higher. The PCGS population is only 4 with 3 higher (two AU58+’s and the aforementioned MS60).

1852 Small Head Wass, Molitor & Co. $5 NGC VF30

A “Small Head”

Wass, Molitor & Co. was one of the best-respected assaying and coining firms in San Francisco during the early years of the California Gold Rush. These gold pieces were welcome sights in circulation at a time when coinage was sorely lacking. This is an example of the rare 1852 Small Head variety modeled after the federal half eagle. Differences are most notable on the coronet (“W.M. & Co.”) and reverse legend. The NGC population report shows only two in VF with none higher.

1852 Assay (887 Thous.) $50 PCGS AU53

Flashy, Eye-Appealing

Struck in .887 fineness under the authority of the United States Assay Office of Gold, Augustus Humbert assayer, the 1852 octagonal fifty dollar slugs are perhaps the most recognized numismatic artifacts of the historic Gold Rush era. The Reeded Edge fifties of this period were much easier to produce than the older Lettered Edge Humbert pieces. Accordingly, they were struck in large numbers and widely accepted throughout the region and in overseas trade. Easily recognized in their day, most examples were later turned in and melted for recoinage at the San Francisco Mint when that facility opened in 1854. The PCGS population stands at 13 with 15 higher. While not apparent in our images, this example is particularly flashy, due to lustrous, semi-prooflike obverse

1852 Gold Dollar PCGS MS68

One of the Very Finest

The 1852 is among the common dates in the Type One gold dollar set, popular with type collectors. However, Type One gold dollars are universally rare in Superb Gem condition, even the common dates. The 1852 is actually rarer in MS67 and higher grades than a few of the other Philadelphia issues. In MS68, though this issue’s rarity expands to represent the rarity of the entire Type One series. This little beauty features a very sharp strike, satiny luster and a pristine appearance. The PCGS population is only 4 with 1 higher.

Rare Mint State Territorial Gold Piece
