Lot Description
1853 50C Liberty Round 50 Cents, BG-417, High R.5, MS64 PCGS. Among the finest certified examples of this challenging Period One variety, struck contemporaneously with the California Gold Rush. The portrait is high relief and in fine style, but the lettering is crude, presumably entered by a different engraver. The obverse is immaculate and mattelike. The reverse is satiny and dished, as made. In an old green label holder. Population: 1 in 64, 1 finer (3/09).
