Description 1849 50C MS65 NGC. WB-104. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1849 Seated Liberty half dollar is a better date in the series, from a mintage of 1.2 million pieces. This coin shows a very lightly recut 1 in the date and a die crack through the bottom of the numerals in the date, identifying the WB-104 variety. Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert rate the WB-104 as a High R.7 issue in Mint State. This sharply detailed Gem displays vibrant mint luster and mostly brilliant centers, with attractive accents of golden-brown and lavender toning in peripheral areas. The design elements show fine definition on Liberty's foot support and hair, with just the slightest softness on the eagle's left (facing) claw. Census: 3 in 65, 0 finer (10/13). 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 @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $15,275.00 .
