Lot Description
1853 50C Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-302, Low R.4, MS62 PCGS. The reverse of this octagonal 50 cent depicts an eagle with glory rays reminiscent of a peacock. That, with the initials F.D. under the bun, confirms the variety. Yellow-gold, mint-green, and apricot patina adorns both sides, and the design elements are relatively well struck. A nicely preserved piece. The PCGS insert states "BG-302 Eagle."
