Description:
1852 Humbert Fifty, 887 Thous., K-11, XF45
1852 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. XF45 NGC. K-11, R.5. By the second year of coinage in 1852, Augustus Humbert had progressed to reeded edge coins with pertinent legends around the perimeter, and producing the .887 fineness pieces early in the year in two varieties before moving to standard .900 fineness pieces later.
This .887 fineness piece has the legend AUGUSTUS HUMBERT UNITED STATES ASSAYER OF GOLD CALIFORNIA around the obverse rim. (Later .887 pieces [K-13, Low R.5] show the legend UNITED STATES ASSAY OFFICE OF GOLD SAN FRANCISCO CALIFORNIA.) The surfaces are a pretty yellow-gold color with a good deal of luster remaining, although the few edge bumps seen are typical for these soft and heavy large gold coins. Listed on page 362 of the 2009 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10217)
