    Lightly Circulated 1851 Humbert Fifty Dollar AU50, K-6

    1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. AU50 NGC. K-6, R.4. A lightly circulated example of this large format Territorial gold coin. The Assay Office in San Francisco actually did very little in 1851 to help alleviate California's need for a circulating medium. What they did under Humbert's leadership was to convert the raw gold dust that had previously been used as currency into these large, so-called $50 "slugs." This piece is moderately abraded on the obverse, and lightly marked on the reverse. The often weak central details are typically soft on this example, and the coloration is a pleasing, uniform, light green-gold.
    From The Twin Hollows Collection.
