Despite a relatively small mintage figure, the 1852-C is one of the most available Charlotte gold dollars. This strongly suggests that a hoard existed at one time. This theory seems especially plausible when one considers the number of high grade examples which are known. Approximately 150 are known with fifteen or so grading Mint State. Many 1852-C gold dollars have a distinctive mint-made flaw covering the second L and the A in DOLLAR. It is believed that this is the result of a foreign deposit adhering to the dies at the time of striking. This is a date which can be found with extremely nice color and good luster.
