1875-S 50C WB-104, Die Pair 2, R.4, AU58 NGC. Four mintmark sizes are known among the 22 die marriages for the 1875-S. Only the Micro S mintmark is scarcer than the Small Wide S, with each of those two scarcities represented by single die marriages. This is a lilac-gray near-Mint State example with bright silver luster shining at the margins. Liberty's hair strands show minor blending, but the strike is otherwise sharp and there are no distracting marks. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $4.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
