Rich gold, mauve, and sea-green colors envelope this briefly circulated gold rush Dollar. The wingtips and coronet have light rub, although the portrait retains exquisite detail. CALIFORNIA is awkwardly engraved, with the O widely repunched. Although BG-534 is a rare variety, it is also popular due to the eagle and shield motif on the reverse, which closely resembles the obverse of the Humbert Fifty Dollar slugs that were issued in quantity earlier in the decade. Population: 3 in 50, 4 finer (8/03).
