XF 1852 Assay Office Fifty
887 Thous., K-13

1852 $50 Assay Office Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. XF40 PCGS. K-13, Low R.5. The eagle's wings are lustrous and have nearly complete detail, while the eagle's fletchings and leg display wear. The obverse is moderately hairlined, and distributed obverse field marks are appropriate for the grade and type. Octagonal fifty dollar "slugs," as issued by the San Francisco U.S. Assay Office, are icons of the California gold rush, and dominated West Coast commerce between 1851 and 1854, when the San Francisco Mint finally commenced operation. Listed on page 355 of the 2008 Guide Book.
From The John Stimson, Sr. Collection, Part Two. (NGC ID# ANHG, PCGS# 10016)
