Territorial Gold 1852/1 VF 30 PCGS $20 Humbert
884 THOUS. This coin was an integral part of the Territorial series of gold coinage of the California gold rush and was issued by the United States Assay Office of Gold during the time of Augustus Humbert as Assayer under Moffat & Co. (1851-1852). The Assay Office was the predecessor of the branch mint at San Francisco. The United States Assay Office minted gold pieces which following the establishment of the Federal Mint, were melted and minted to become United States twenty dollar gold coins. PCGS has certified two coins at this level with a mere seven finer.
