Description:
Famous XF 1855 Wass, Molitor Fifty, K-9
1855 $50 Wass Molitor Fifty Dollar XF40 PCGS. K-9, R.5. Although the long-awaited San Francisco Mint was finally in operation during 1855, a shortage of parting acids prevented satisfactory coinage of double eagles. Two private firms, Kellogg & Co. and Wass Molitor, stepped up to the plate until Mint production was sufficient. This impressive example is evenly struck save for star 1. Some luster remains, and the yellow-gold surfaces are typically abraded, with minor laminations near a few of the reverse peripheral letters. Listed on page 371 of the 2009 Guide Book. Population: 12 in 40, 21 finer (4/09). (PCGS# 10363)
