||1814 50C MS65 NGC. CAC. O-104a, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This spectacular Gem is well-detailed and brightly lustrous, with the outstanding visual appeal of a coin that has been carefully stored in a Wayte Raymond holder. The well-preserved surfaces show the attractive pattern of golden-brown and flamboyant violet toning seen on many coins that Eric P. Newman obtained from "Colonel" E.H.R. Green's estate. We expect spirited competition from series specialists when this lot is called. The 1814 Capped Bust half dollar claims a nominal mintage of just over 1 million pieces, with nine die varieties known for the date. Collectors tell us that it is more difficult to locate in Mint State than bust halves dated 1811, 1812, or 1813. 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 @ $4.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
