||1811 50C Small 8 MS66+ NGC. CAC. O-110a, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This well-detailed Premium Gem is a bit lighter in the centers than the last few offerings but with the same depth of undisturbed luster. The album toning displays hints of champagne-gold and violet toning at the peripheries. The strike and surfaces are impeccable. Stephen Herrman lists one example of an 1811 O-110 in MS66 and another Premium Gem specimen of the O-110a. The Plus designation gives this coin a slight edge over those examples and solidifies its claim to the number one spot in the Condition Census for the variety. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $3.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
