Item Description:
One of the most interesting pieces from the time of the Territorial Issues during the great California Gold Rush. Produced by Moffat and Company with Augustus Humber as the Assayer, these pieces were considered to be of good value and passed as on par with official government issues due to the reputation of the company. Operating as a semiofficial branch of the United States mint, these pieces heavily circulated. This examples if gorgeous lustrous with flashy highlights. A few marks are noticeable around the rims and on the corners of the reverse as expected. A great historical Gold Rush item that is ideal for the Pioneer collector.
