Augustus Humbert was a watchcase maker in New York City, appointed as an assayer for the United States Assay Office. The Assay Office, which was a provisional U.S. government minting facility, was created to accommodate the Gold miners in California until the government could formally establish an official mint.
This $50 Gold piece was widely accepted by banks and merchants and the wear on this extremely rare coin is a testament to that fact. Although this large heavy Gold coin was known as a "slug," a "quintuple eagle" or a "five-eagle piece," the technical name for this item is an "ingot." All Humbert Gold pieces are extremely rare and this circulated piece is no exception.
