1851 Augustus Humbert $50. Reeded Edge. K-7. Rarity-7. 887 THOUS., Target Reverse. VF-20 (ICG).Of the several Augustus Humbert $50s that we are offering in this sale, this ICG-certified example stands out for two reasons. First, it is what is closest to a budget-minded offering that one could realistically hope to find for the type. Warm honey-wheat surfaces are quite rough, especially on the obverse, which side is more extensively peppered with tiny marks and nicks than the reverse. A somewhat glossy texture points to a cleaning, and a couple of shallow rim bruises along the lower obverse are also noted. The overall design is fully appreciable, nonetheless. Second, the Kagin-7 attribution is a rarity for this type and identifiable by smaller concentric circles in the center of the reverse with the outer ribbon away from the edge. These features are usually seen on Humberts 1852 $50 gold issue. With a charm all its own, this coin makes a historic California Gold Rush series accessible to a wider group of collectors and will see spirited bidding, as a result.PCGS# 10214. NGC ID: ANH9.
