Description

Near-Mint 1852/1 Humbert Ten Dollar, K-8

1852/1 $10 Humbert Ten Dollar AU58 NGC. K-8, R.4. A late reverse die state with a heavy diagonal crack between 12 and 5 o'clock and a prominent break beneath the F in CALIFORNIA. This is a partly lustrous piece that has honey-gold color and moderate wear on the eagle's shield and leg. Field marks are refreshingly minor, and the eye appeal is impressive. The dies were made in 1851 in anticipation that authorization was forthcoming to strike denominations of less than fifty dollars. The authority was finally granted in 1852, thus the reverse die was overdated prior to production. 1852 was a transitional year at the U.S. Assay Office, whose operator re-organized after founder John Little Moffat left the firm. Listed on page 369 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 7 in 58, 5 finer (11/10). (NGC ID# 342H, PCGS# 10190)
