1851 Humbert Fifty Dollar Slug, XF40
Popular 887 Thous., K-6 Variety

1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. XF40 NGC. K-6, R.4. The U.S. Assay Office, operated by Moffat & Co. under the nominal authority of U.S. Assayer Augustus Humbert, opened in 1851 to satisfy the needs of the regional economy until a branch mint could be established. Seven different varieties of the fifty dollar gold "slugs" were issued during 1851, of which the present K-6 variety is the most available. This piece shows signs of moderate circulation, with some wear on all surfaces, and a scattering of minor abrasions on both sides. A few minor rim bruises are evident, particularly on the corner at 2 o'clock, but these are present on almost all specimens of this design. The pale gold fields are slightly granular, but much original luster remains. Listed on page 368 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 7 in 40, 77 finer (6/10). (PCGS# 10214)
