PCGS Coin Number: 7522
The 1853-C gold dollars were very poorly made; often exhibiting a weak strike and central portions on the reverse which are nearly always obscured near the date. Grading the 1853-C gold dollar can be a tricky business. A Mint State coin must be graded more by the luster than by details or apparent wear. Partial prooflike examples of this date are sometimes seen. Although the 1852-C and 1853-C are very similar in overall rarity; the 1853-C is much rarer in higher states of preservation. The finest graded to date is an NGC MS-65 example. There are two varieties known for the date; including one with the mintmark obviously repunched.
