||1825 50C AU58 NGC. CAC. O-103, R.4. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The O-103, a sticky R.4, is much sought-after by die variety collectors. The few high grade examples are highly prized. This lightly circulated example displays nearly full mint luster under shades of champagne-gold and dove-gray toning. Though the devices are a bit soft (from die wear) there is only light wear on the high points and the surfaces are unusually well-preserved. 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.
