A method is developed for constructing a (- pi , pi ) arc distribution function of one-dimensional coherent state superpositions on a circle from the (- infinity , infinity ) weight function. Changing the parameters of a Gaussian weight function superposition states with different amplitude-squeezed and number-phase uncertainty properties can be prepared.
