||1829 50C Small Letters MS63 NGC. O-112, R.1. A cluster of die lines between the date and star 13 are visible on early die states of the O-112, as here. Cherry pickers will do well to memorize this obverse. It appears in its late die state, without the die lines, on the R.8 (2 known) 1829 O-120 (which was actually struck in 1831), married to a different reverse that was first used in 1831, the 1831 O-104. The present example has the classic appearance of many half-dollars from the Newman Collection. It features a deep, lightly iridescent crust of antique toning over original, unblemished surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
