    1849 Pacific Company Two and a Half
    VF30, K-2 Silver Die Trial


    B1/2 Pacific Company Die Trial VF30 PCGS. K-2, High R.6. The date is below and PACIFIC COMPANY, CALIFORNIA is around. The reverse has a Liberty cap on a pole with 10 groups of three rays, and three stars between each two groups of rays, for a total of 30 stars. The denomination 2 1/2 DOLLARS is below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    This is only the third appearance of a Pacific Company two and one-half dollar silver die trial in any of our sales since 1993, and it is a reappearance of an earlier offering. Uncleaned and original with light to medium gray patina, it has moderate wear on the highpoints and a single distinctive scratch across the cap in the center obverse.
