1851 U.S. Assay Office $50 "slug", 887 THOUS. Reeded edge. PCGS graded EF-40. Greenish gold surfaces with an even scattering of the expected abrasions. A true workhorse issue from a time when the pure need for coinage meant any example would circulate heavily. The present example survived without picking up any huge rim dings or gouge marks. Feather and shield detail is sharper than normally seen for the assigned grade. A very pleasing example and let's face it. everyone who can afford one, should own at least one!
Estimated Value $13,000 - 15,000.

Realized $16,675
