||1827/6 50C Square Base 2 MS65 NGC. CAC. O-101, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This delightful Gem is toned in iridescent shades of violet, lavender, and golden-brown, with vibrant mint luster underneath. The design elements are sharply rendered as is the 6 underlying the 7 in the date. No mentionable distractions are evident. Eye appeal is terrific. We find no record of a finer example of this die marriage appearing at auction. The Newman coin may be the finest extant. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P.
