Description:
1851 Humbert Fifty Dollar, 'Target' Reverse
K-5, 880 Thous., XF40
1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, Reeded Edge, 880 Thous. XF40 NGC. K-5, Low R.5. The 1851-dated Humbert obverse with 880 THOUS. on the banner, "target" reverse design, and reeded edge. The bright yellow-gold example offered here is well struck overall, though the peripheral lettering, particularly at the upper obverse words UNITED STATES ASSAYER, shows weakness. It shows clear evidence of being in circulation, with wear focused on the high points of the obverse and a number of scattered abrasions and rim nicks. A handful of bumps are noted on the corners as well. Though these flaws are present, the luster and eye appeal are considerable, as is the desirability of this hefty and famous issue. Listed on page 379 of the 2013 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10211)
