1853 FD Octagonal 50 Cents, BG-303. Eagle (“Peacock”) Reverse. MS62 PCGS. OGH.
Similar, FD and date below head (both very weak), only 10 stars around; same reverse die, but with double punching at 50 and T polished off. Already Frontier & Deviercy allowed their quality to slip; perhaps they lost the services of a skilled diesinker? Very Rare; 13-16 recorded in Breen-Gillio, probably including duplication. Weakly struck on eagle’s head, but attractive rose toning with flecks of blue. The Totheroh PCGS AU58 brought $11,750.
