Lot Description
1853 50C Octagonal Liberty, Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-302, Low R.4, AU58 NGC. A nice, near-Mint example of this scarce fractional half dollar variety. A peacock is pictured on the reverse. All four numerals in the date are repunched. Boldly struck with 180-degree die rotation, and typical wear for the grade. Dots of die rust (as made) are easy to see in the left obverse field, but there are no abrasions on either side of the coin.
