David Akers (1975/88): The mintage of the 1852 is fairly high by No Motto standards and almost identical to that of the 1851-O which is only a moderately scarce date. However, the 1852 is very scarce in all grades and rare in AU condition. In full mint state it is very rare and I have seen only two uncirculated examples that I call "choice" along with three or four others of average (bag-marked) quality. The 1852 is similar in overall rarity to the 1848 and more rare than the 1847, 1847-O, 1849, 1850, 1851-O and 1853. It is certainly not the "common date" type coin the mintage would lead one to believe. No proofs were struck.
