||1875-S 50C MS66 NGC. CAC. WB-101. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1875-S Seated liberty half dollar was produced in large numbers and most survivors seen represent the WB-101 variety, with a very small mintmark. Although the WB-101 is a plentiful issue in lower grades, it is conditionally rare at the MS66 level. The coin offered here is a spectacular Premium Gem, with well-detailed design elements that show just a touch of softness on some of the stars. Intense shades of golden-brown, slate-gray, and lilac toning blanket the well-preserved surfaces and radiant mint luster shines underneath. Census: 7 in 66, 1 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 @ $3.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
