Most 1852 O Double Eagles are very heavily abraded. A smaller number are seen with mint-made planchet chips or other minor planchet defects. While Choice, clean examples are available, they're scarce and generally bring a strong premium relative to â€œtypicalâ€ quality coins. The type of luster seen on this date tends to be a hybrid of frosty and satiny, and on higher grade coins it can be attractive. The luster on this issue tends to be better than that found on the 1851 O, making the 1852 O a good choice for a New Orleans Type One type coin. This date has better eye appeal than any other New Orleans Double Eagle but it is still below average when compared to Philadelphia issues of this type.
There are some very attractive 1852 O Double Eagles in all grade ranges (Extremely Fine, About Uncirculated, and Uncirculated) but these have become hard to find. Every collection of Type One double eagles should have at least one really nice New Orleans issue, and the 1852 O is your best choice. The level of demand for well preserved New Orleans Double Eagles should continue to be strong in the coming years. Due to the availability of the 1852 O in AU, the date is always in demand from mintmark type collectors, seeking a high grade example for their collections.
