||1813 50C MS67+ S NGC. CAC. O-107a, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. What might one say about a coin of this caliber? It is everything you expect of the stratospheric MS67+ S designation. The coin is truly "as struck" in terms of luster and preservation, with the joyous addition of iridescent color through the stars and legend. The luminous silver centers are surrounded by champagne-gold and electrified cobalt-blue toning. This coin combines Registry Set technical quality with breathtaking eye appeal in one irresistible package. The present coin is at least two grading points finer than any other example of an 1813 O-107 (or O-107a). NGC president Mark Salzberg recently reminded us how "daunting" it was to grade the Newman coins that are clearly "several points above the next finest known example." Bidders will enjoy an exhilarating experience in the auction room when this coin reaches the podium. 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 @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
