1853 Octagonal Fifty Cents, MS62
1853 50C Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-302, Low R.4, MS62
NGC. The popular "Peacock" reverse, with a burst of rays behind
the eagle that resemble the tailfeathers of a peacock; the eagle's
real tailfeathers are seen below. This is the more plentiful of the
two varieties that employ this reverse, identified by the F.D.
positioned behind the obverse portrait, rather than below, as is
seen on BG-303. This piece is well-struck, but with minor planchet
laminations visible in the left reverse field. Both sides show
bright yellow-gold color. Produced by Frontier, Deviercy, & Co.
Census: 4 in 62, 6 finer (3/15).
