Description:
Medium-Sized Kellogg & Humbert Gold Ingot
Kellogg & Humbert Gold Assay Ingot. By far the most frequently encountered of all the ingots on board the S.S. Central America, Kellogg and Humbert were a highly respected private partnership that was formed in April 1855 and remained in business until 1860. John Glover Kellogg was born on December 3, 1823, in Marvellus, Onondoga County, New York. Augustus Humbert was born on July 2, 1815, in Switzerland. Their partnership well known for its $20 and $50 gold pieces that were created in an era in which the recently opened San Francisco mint could not keep up with demand. Kellogg was formerly associated with the highly esteemed Moffat & Co., and Augustus Humbert had previously been the United States Assayer of Gold in San Francisco.
This medium-sized ingot has virtually none of the deep reddish tarnish usually seen on these historic bars. The top side reads: No. 953 / KELLOGG & HUMBERT ASSAYERS / 47.81 Oz / 948 FINE / $936.92. On the back side the individual bar number 953 is repeated, but it is upside-down. (#10229) (PCGS# 10229)
