1853 F.D. Octagonal Fifty Cents, BG-301. Eagle Reverse. MS62 PCGS. OGH.
Proudly signed by Frontier, Deviercy & Co., this coin has a large head with F.D. below and 13 stars around; the reverse presents an eagle with shield and scroll, copying the design on the famous Humbert $50 slugs, with the inscription CALIFORNIA GOLD/ FIFTY 1853. CENTS. The most desirable California gold half dollar, and a key to any type set. Very Rare; just 15 survivors listed in Breen-Gillio, including some duplication, plus one that appeared since. Flashy Prooflike Uncirculated, and in spite of a dark spot on shield. Probably the finest known specimen found; far superior to our PCGS AU Details, Totheroh specimen which brought $20,562.50.
