Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1852 Half Dime is a very common coin at all condition levels, whether circulated or Mint State.  Even Gem (MS65) examples can be found with relative ease.  Above MS65, the population drops dramatically, culminating in a single, simply monstrous, PCGS MS68.  This date represents great value for the type collector because of the high availability and the relatively low cost.

A few examples of this date show weakness on the denticles on both sides.  This may be a function of worn dies or sloppy quality control due to the large mintage.
