1852 U.S. Assay Office $50 Gold, 900 THOUS. PCGS graded VF-35. A yellow gold specimen with rose gold toning found in the recessed areas of the obverse. An example that is above par in comparison to other VF examples as their are no rim bruises or deep nicks or abrasions. A thin scratch is seen on the reverse running through the interwoven concentric circles. Feather detail is that of a nice XF example. A true workhorse coin from the California Gold Rush Era. As a variety, there are fewer "900" examples known in all grades than the "887" variety (PCGS # 10019) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $14,950
