1851 Territorial California Humbert $50 RE 880 PCGS AU58 (CAC)


This is by far one of the nicest slugs we have EVER seen (only the 64 stands out in our minds as better)! We have handled many. We think this coin is MS, but we’re not going to crack and risk damage. THIS COIN IS A TREASURE!

Remarkable surfaces have NO marks. The reverse is 100% clean with no interruptions in the pattern. With all the wear and tear of travel for these slugs this coins state of preservation is unthinkable. The rims are full and there are none of the typical edge bumps you see. Both sides are a GEM original deeper gold color. There are NO spots or discolorations. Every detail is well struck an has light frost. We think one patch of softness by the eagle is what they graded it AU58 vs MS61 or even MS62. The eye appeal is jaw dropping!

PCGS 5, NGC 13, CAC 6. We would put this coin vs ALL others up to MS62. It is INCREDIBLE. Yes, the price is expensive, you need to see the coin! We just paid $156,000.00 out of auction., WE ARE MADLY IN LOVE WITH IT (we will regret selling it)!
