Another Wass Molitor Fifty Dollar From the Estate of Jack Klausen, XF40 PCGS1855 $50 Wass Molitor Fifty Dollar XF40 PCGS. K-9, R.5. A second and even finer example of this historically important and rare Territorial issue, both sides exhibit rich green-gold color that lightens somewhat at direct angles. The number of small and moderate abrasions is typical of a Fifty Dollar gold piece at the Extremely Fine level of preservation. Nevertheless, accuracy compels us to mention a few scattered indentations in the upper obverse field and on the reverse around the denomination 50 DOLLARS. Sharply struck with plenty of remaining detail. Listed on page 298 of the current Guide Book.
