Description

PCGS-Certified 1851 Augustus Humbert $50--Lettered Edge, 887 Thous., 50 Reverse Variety

1851 $50 LE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. 50 Reverse AU50 PCGS. K-4, High R.5. A rare Territorial gold issue, this is the first representative of this variety that we have offered since 1993. This coin obviously circulated for a brief time in Gold Rush California. The copper toned surfaces are expectantly abraded for a "slug" at the AU level of preservation with a scrape at the M in AMERICA and several rim bumps. All other features, however, are at least boldly detailed with only light wear over the highest points of the design. An important offering for the gold specialist, this issue is listed on page 289 of the current Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANH4, PCGS# 10208)
