I'd also suggest that N50 and contig number is not the only metric for how "good" an assembly is, nor even a particularly good one. There are alternatives (e.g. http://genomebiology.com/2013/14/1/R8/abstract)
If you have any smaller known sequences that you absolutely know should be in your genome (e.g. genes from earlier studies), you should see if they are in there and correctly assembled.
