Lot Description
1853 50C Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-302, Low R.4, AU58 NGC. Early die state, although a horizontal die crack has developed on the reverse from the claws to the border at right. Pale violet toning clings to the peripheral devices. Certainly not among the scarcer Period One gold fractionals, but one of the more popular issues because of its distinctive reverse.
