Lot Description
1813 50C 50C/UNI MS64 PCGS. CAC. O-101, R.2. This popular Guide Book variety exhibits a blundered reverse die; the UNI in UNITED was erroneously engraved in place of the denomination and was only partially effaced before 50C was punched in its place. Aqua-blue toning around the obverse rim frames the golden-gray center, while the reverse displays variegated aquamarine, lavender-gray, and violet hues. The strike is bold and well-centered, showing prominent clash marks seen on each side. The few light grazes scattered over the lustrous surfaces are minuscule and virtually undetectable to the unaided eye. Population: 5 in 64, 0 finer (5/14). Ex: New York Signature (Heritage, 7/2004), lot 6457.
