||1838 50C MS63+ NGC. CAC. GR-3, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Golden-brown and apple-green endow this satiny and minimally abraded half dollar. The strike is good overall though the curls show slight blending of detail and the dentils and right-side stars show incompleteness. GR-3 is available in circulated grades but nice Mint State examples are elusive. 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.
