    1852 Assay Office Fifty Dollar, AU53
    887 Thous., Kagin-13

    1852 $50 Assay Office Fifty Dollar, 887 Thous. AU53 PCGS. K-13, Low R.5. A lightly circulated representative that displays substantial bright luster within the eagle's wings. The corners lack the knocks often seen for this iconic Gold Rush type, and the fields show only minor contact, with only marks below the right ribbon end worthy of singular mention. K-13 was likely struck in considerable quantity, but many were melted after the Federal government refused to accept slugs as payment unless they met the standard of 900 Fine, and most others were eventually recoined into double eagles. Listed on page 402 of the 2020 Guide Book. Population: 13 in 53, 15 finer (8/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# ANHG, PCGS# 10016)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
