    Rare Mint State 1852 Humbert Ten Dollar

    1852 $10 Humbert Ten Dollar MS61 NGC. K-10a, High R.6. Ranked among the more commonly seen issues of California gold pieces overall, but the K-10 variety of the 1852 Humbert ten dollar is conditionally rare in Mint State grades. The late die state of K-10 is given the K-10a designation by Kagin, and is known as the IINITED variety due to the heavy die crack through the base of UNITED. The late state piece offered here has a shattered obverse die with extensive cracks around the entire circumference, along with severe die rust that covers the entire obverse surface. Listed on page 355 of the 2008 Guide Book. Census: 2 in 61, 1 finer (11/07).
