    1853 Round Half Dollar, Unc Details
    About a Dozen BG-420 Survivors

    1853 50C Liberty Round 50 Cents, BG-420, Low R.7 -- Obverse Scratched -- NGC Details. Unc. Liberty's portrait is the same as that used on the Deriberpe gold dollars, confirming the origin of this extremely rare Period One gold half dollar. Faint green accents accompany light yellow-gold color on each side. Moderate semiprooflikeness is more pronounced on the obverse than the reverse. Sharply struck throughout with minimal abrasions aside from the noted impairment, extending from below the eye down to the tip of the bust. However, it hardly detracts from the overall desirability of this rare California fractional gold piece, as there are only about 12 BG-420 survivors from which to choose.
    From The Elbert Henry Gary Collection.
