Lot Description
1853 50C Peacock Reverse 50 Cents, BG-303, Low R.7, AU58 NGC. A very rare variety of the popular Peacock reverse subtype. The F.D. initials (for Frontier and Deviercy) are located above the date rather than beneath the hair bun, although die lapping has weakened the initials and date. A satiny near-Mint example with original olive, peach, and ruby-red toning. Unabraded and problem-free. Census: 1 in 58, 1 finer (7/08). From The Hamous Collection of California Gold.
