    1852 Humbert Ten, AU53
    Eye-Appealing 884 Thous. K-10 Variety

    1852 $10 Humbert Ten Dollar AU53 NGC. K-10, Low R.4. 884 THOUS. The Humbert ten dollar issues often show severe die cracking and crumbling in the later die states, although this piece is in earlier states. Even here, though, some cracks occur on the obverse, notably connecting the letter bottoms of UNITED. As was the case in 1851-52 with the octagonal fifty dollar gold pieces, the ten dollar pieces with the Humbert nameplate, AUGUSTUS HUMBERT UNITED STATES ASSAYER OF GOLD, were superseded by those beginning UNITED STATES ASSAY OFFICE OF GOLD. This is the 1852 nonoverdated Humbert ten. The medium yellow-gold surfaces show excellent eye appeal, despite the presence of a few distributed marks on each side. Listed on page 382 of the 2014 Guide Book.
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation. (NGC ID# ANGG, PCGS# 10187)
