Kellogg & Co., 50 Dollars, 1855

 

a.
This private-issue gold coin may have been made with a die that retained oil in the rim. This inconsistently dark edge indicates that a different chemical process has occurred as compared with the rest of the coin’s brilliant mirror proof surface.

 

b.
Advertising for Kellogg & Co. was placed here in the band of the coronet.
