Service Catalog # 6263
Denomination 50C
Mint Mark O
Description 1849-O 50C AU55 NGC. CAC. WB-101. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1849-O had mintage of 2.3 million pieces, a large enough production run that one would think higher grade examples would be more available than they are. However, pieces are remarkably difficult to locate in AU and Mint State, especially with minimally marked surfaces. This Choice AU example displays deep reddish-gray patina over each side. Close examination reveals a few abrasions, but none are worthy of individual mention. The strike details are slightly soft over the high points. 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. Realized $734.38 .
