    1852 Humbert Octagonal Fifty
    VF30, K-11, 887 Thous.

    1852 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. VF30 PCGS. K-11, R.5. The Kagin-11 "slug" was struck shortly before founder John Little Moffat left Moffat & Co., which operated the U.S. Assay Office of San Francisco. Moffat's exit caused a company reorganization into the United States Assay Office of Gold with principals Joseph R. Curtis, Philo P. Perry, and Samuel H. Ward. Augustus Humbert stayed on as assayer but his name no longer appeared on issues of the new company. The present butter-gold example has clear legends and substantial plumage detail. The glossy surfaces exhibit distributed small marks. We note moderate obverse edge knocks at 6:30 and 5:30. Listed on page 377 of the 2013 Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANGT, PCGS# 10217)
