||1835 50C MS65 NGC. CAC. O-103, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This delightful Gem appears to be tied for top spot in the Condition Census for the variety. The central devices are sharply struck. The reverse die, it may be noted, emerged unscathed from its earlier use on the 1834 O-119. The richly toned, intensely lustrous obverse features iridescent shades of golden-brown, lavender, and lilac toning. The silver-gray reverse is more lightly toned with pastel colors and iridescence through most of the legend. Three dots alongside star 2 are mint made, thought by students to have been imparted by the mechanism used to eject coins from the coining chamber of the screw press. The overall eye appeal of this 1835 half dollar is remarkable. 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 @ $3.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
