||1879 50C MS65 NGC. CAC. WB-102. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Many 1879 half dollars display some degree of reflectivity in the fields because the initial die polish never had a chance to diminish. This example shows bright semi-reflectivity in the fields that enlivens the rich blue-gray and rose toning seen over each side. Fully struck. 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 @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
