Item Description:
This exciting $50 gold slug (as we call them) is a piece of gold rush history. Augustus Humbert, a New York watchmaker was appointed as a government assayer to help ease the assay of incoming California gold. A small number of these large pieces exist today, and very few survive in high grades. The sheer weight and wagon travel damaged most of the coins. Some light circulation marks are found across the surfaces, none of which are particularly egregious, and the delightful old gold color is present across the coin's entirety. It has been a long time since we have handled any examples for the type, and this coin affords the collector a chance to place this prize in their collection.
