I was very lucky to pick this one up and just arrived in todays mail.......a big shout to thanks to Dave Wnuck!!!


41 mm. Parker Facsimile of the 1855 Kellogg & Company $50 round gold slug. Reeded edge.

San Francisco coin dealer Earl Parker sold them as souvenirs at the ANA Conventions in the late 1940s and 1950s.
the obverse with head of Liberty left, surrounding by 13 stars and date 1855 below.
On the reverse there is the familiar eagle with outstretched wings, ribbon in beak and shield below, surrounded by SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA FIFTY.


I would venture to say one of the finest graded at MS67 and quite rare at a R7
