    Struck from Kellogg & Humbert Ingots
    Recovered From the
    S.S. Central America

    2008 "Humbert $50 Commemorative" Gem Proof NGC. #5 of 375 struck. This relic medal was struck on September 12, 2008, using bullion from two Kellogg & Humbert gold ingots (#830 & #555) recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck. The design closely imitates the Kagin-11 1852 Humbert fifty, aside from a four-line inscription within a rectangular area of the reverse, reminiscent of the Kagin-10 Humbert ten. Housed in a presentation box with glass frame. (PCGS# 10361)
