    1852 Indian Round Half Dollar, BG-1075
    MS65 Deep Prooflike, Very Rare
    Backdated Variety Discovered by Jay Roe

    1852 50C Indian Round 50 Cents, BG-1075, R.7, MS65 Deep Prooflike NGC. This backdated Period One round fifty cent (a variety discovered by California fractional gold expert Dr. John Westel Rowe "Jay Roe") boasts incredible orange-gold-on-black contrasting surfaces that surpass many true proof federal gold coins of the era. The strike is sharp, and generous luster prevails throughout both side. A planchet lamination shows at stars 2 and 3 on the obverse, and other smaller flaws show on the reverse, as made, but there is little in the way of post-strike distractions. Census: 1 in 65 Prooflike, 0 finer (11/15). The finest at PCGS are two in MS65.
    From The Elbert Henry Gary Collection. (NGC ID# 2C2T, PCGS# 10904)
