Lot Description
1853 50C Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-302, Low R.4, MS63 PCGS. The famous "Peacock" reverse was possibly made to mimic the federal coins that were struck with rays that year. A small blemish on the reverse minimally affects the appeal of this yellow-gold and lustrous representative. Numerous die rust spots indicate that this piece is Die State II. Encapsulated in a green label PCGS holder. Ex: Harold Rothenberger Collection (Superior, 1/31-2/1/1994), lot 2803.
