Description:
VF Sharpness 1851 Humbert Fifty
887 Thous., 50 Reverse
1851 $50 LE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. 50 Rev.--Tooled--NGC. VF Details. A moderately worn, extensively tooled or re-engraved example of the famed Humbert fifty dollar octagonal family. The 887 fineness appears to be reengraved, as does the 50 at the bottom of the obverse. The eagle is almost entirely reengraved, as are many of the letters. The central 50 on the reverse appears to be reengraved, as does the border around the entire coin. All of the tooling work, which was done with a steady hand, makes attribution extremely difficult. It appears that this is an example of Kagin-4, with the reverse reengraved to resemble the Kagin-3 design. (PCGS# 10208)
