    1849 Massachusetts & California
    Dies Trial in Copper, AU50, Kagin-5c, Unique

    1849 DT$5 Massachusetts & California Half Eagle Dies Trial in Copper AU50 NGC. Kagin-5c, Unique. Unlisted in Kagin. This reverse dies trial striking has the reverse impression of Kagin-5b. The other side has DOLLARS spelled out with the S punched in backward. We are unclear what the intention was for striking this piece, but its trial nature seems obvious. The planchet is slightly porous and the piece is uniformly brown. An area of light corrosion can be seen in the field below CALIFORNIA. A few light marks are seen on each side, but none are worthy of individual mention.
