Desirable 900 Thous. 1852 Assay Fifty Dollars

1852 $50 Assay Office Fifty Dollar, 900 Thous. AU50 NGC. K-14, High R.5. Although dated 1852, this issue was delivered in the first two months of 1853. Don Kagin, in his 1981 standard reference Private Gold Coins of the United States, states that 23,800 pieces were produced. However, the vast majority of these have presumably been melted. This golden-brown representative has moderate highpoint rub but is relatively free from the rim dings that often accompany this Assay denomination. The upper obverse has a heavy contact mark, and the reverse has a lesser scratch near 3 o'clock. Listed on page 291 of the 2003 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 50, 16 finer (11/03).(#10019) (NGC ID# ANHH, PCGS# 10019)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
