||1828 50C Square Base 2, Small 8, Large Letters AU58 NGC. CAC. O-118, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Deeply patinated cobalt-blue and walnut-brown. The stars and legend feature lovely iridescence. It is a challenge to find signs of friction or wear, even on the high points. The few signs of contact with other coins are consistent with the grade. We are confident the coin never entered circulation. 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.
