    1853 Liberty Round Half Dollar, MS64
    Rare BG-420

    1853 50C Liberty Round G50C Cents, BG-420, Low R.7, MS64 NGC. A rare Period One die pairing from the San Francisco jewelry shop of M. Deriberpie. BG-420 can be attributed at a glance by the location of star 8, adjacent to the upper fold of the hairbun. The hardy reverse die was used to make BG-418 through BG-421. The large Liberty head is engraved in fine style, and the stars are evenly spaced. The date is also well entered, but the reverse peripheral legend has crude and unevenly spaced letters. The green-gold surfaces are high pleasing, and the strike is sharp throughout. Census: 2 in 64, 0 finer (1/21).
