Description

1852 Humbert Ten, VF30, K-10
Ex:
S.S. Central America

1852 $10 Humbert Ten Dollar VF30 PCGS. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 7368. K-10, R.6. It has always seemed curious that when Gold Rush California needed reliable circulating coinage the most, what they received were fifty dollar slugs from Augustus Humbert and the Assay Office. This coin is one of the exceptions, but the 1852 tens were only struck for four days. It obviously was extensively circulated for five years before the sinking of the S.S. Central America in September, 1857. The centers display greater loss of detail than the margins on each side, and the piece is well-balanced in appearance from obverse to reverse. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold and there are numerous small abrasions scattered about from handling. Listed on page 366 of the 2010 Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANGG, PCGS# 10187)
