  • This is a California Fractional Gold piece identified as BG302 - "Peacock Reverse". Background data provided is credited to the book "California Pioneer Fractional Gold" authored by Walter Breen (the B of BG) with the collaboration of Ronald Gillio (the G of BG). The Peacock description comes from the rays behind the eagle.
    This is the well known reverse die for this 50 cent piece "minted in 1853". Period One Fractional Gold (designated by BG numbers - BG 101 thru BG607) were produced by various makers from 1852 thru 1856 and are know as "circulating issues" serving as small change during the California Gold Rush.
    They were created in 25 cent, 50 cent, 1 dollar denominations and all authentic pieces have some mark of denomination on the reverse. They came in round and octagonal shapes and most period one used an image of Liberty on the obverse.
    The maker of this example is Frontier, Diviercy & Co. 81 Bush St in San Francisco. The maker is known for this piece because of the letters FD on the obverse behind the neck of Liberty's bust. There were many makers of these denominations in the San Francisco area.
    At least three of this variety were found on the sunken wreck of the Winfield Scott, a sidewheel steamer that departed San Francisco Dec 1 1853. The captain and crew struggled with near zero visibility and struck rocks on Anacapa Island (about 30 miles off Santa Barbara). In 1963, divers located the wreck and for several years salvaged multiple gold coins - three of which were this variety.

  • I recently picked this $2.5 for my type set. While walking the bourse floor at a local show I overheard someone offer to a participating vendor. Once he left the vendor we struck a deal in the middle of the floor !! This was 1 of 2 on my specific acquisition list for the day.
