Description:
1851 Humbert Reeded Edge Fifty Dollar
887 Thous., K-7, VF25
1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. VF25 PCGS. K-7, R.4. At the time this hefty coin was struck, the United States Assay Office of Gold was operating under the auspices of Moffat & Co. Augustus Humbert served as the assayer of the U.S. government at the facility, and each of the fifty dollar gold pieces produced by the Assay Office in 1851 carried his name, either on the edge or around the obverse periphery. An elusive representative of the reeded edge 1851 Humbert slug, this pleasingly original coin displays reddish-copper highlights around the obverse devices. The balance of the surfaces are green-gold, and both sides are typically abraded for a circulated frontier-era gold coin of this size. We note several moderate rim dings on each side. Plenty of appreciable definition remains, however, along with traces of luster. Listed on page 364 of the 2010 Guide Book.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 3680.
