1851 Humbert Fifty Dollar Slug, 880 THOUS1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 880 THOUS. XF40 PCGS. Kagin-5, Low R.5. Reeded edge with peripheral lettering identifying Augustus Humbert as the maker of this piece. These large gold pieces provide a direct historical link to the days of the California gold rush. While the various gold ingots also provide such tangible evidence of California history, these slugs are much more affordable. The lettering near the border is weak as usual. This is a lovely reddish-gold example with light abrasions as always seen. The corners of the eight-sided piece have minor nicks or dents, also as always seen. Worth a close look and a premium bid. Listed on page 349 of the 2006 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10211)
