Description 1802 50C -- Obverse Tooled -- NGC Details. AU. O-101, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The only die variety for this low mintage date, a key to the Heraldic Eagle series. Bankers of the day preferred the more convenient silver dollar. The present piece has lovely peripheral autumn-gold, ocean-blue, and rose-red toning. In AU condition the 1802 is exceedingly rare. Unfortunately the lower right obverse field on this example is smoothed and pinscratches are hidden beneath the toning at 6 and 12 o'clock. The reverse is problem-free aside from a small smoothed area near the E in AMERICA. Light adjustment marks are noted through the F in OF and the cloud below. 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 @ $25.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $9,400.00 .
