||1829/7 50C MS66+ NGC. CAC. O-101a, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This high-end Premium Gem displays iridescent shades of dappled gold, green, and gunmetal blue. Magnificent frosty luster underlies the toning. The central devices are nicely impressed, especially so when we note that the reverse die was in its third use. It appeared first on the rare (R.5) 1829 O-106, then on the 1829 O-107. In the later stages of its use on the 1829/7 O-101, repeated polishing of the reverse die eradicated some of the feathers below the shield and parts of the nearby arrow shafts, yielding the O-101, a sub-variety offered here. The Kaufman 1829/7 received an MS66 designation from NGC but was struck from the O-102 die pair. We offered a PCGS MS66 1829/7 O-101 in our July 2008 Baltimore ANA Sale, lot 1685. It brought $32,200. The Newman 1829/7 O-101a appears to be the finest of that die state. It may well be the best of any known 1829/7. 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 @ $10.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
