Ron Guth: The 1852 Dime is a relatively common date from the era prior to the 1853 weight change.  It is also one of the easiest to find in Mint State.  The most frequently-seen Uncirculated grade is MS63 and the dropoff on either side of that grade is almost completely symmetrical.  On the high end, the very best examples are a trio of PCGS MS67s, two of which is illustrated above.

The strike qualities of this date are generally strong, though sometimes several of the stars and denticles may be weak.
