Lot Description
1818/7 50C Small 8 MS66 NGC. Ex: Kaufman. O-102, R.2. An extraordinary example of this popular overdate variety, one of the highly desirable "naked eye" overdates that can be seen without magnification. The strike is bold with frosty luster beneath deep violet-gray and pale iridescent toning. Both sides have exceptional, pristine surfaces that are practically mark-free. The finest examples of this variety that have been offered in recent auctions include an MS65 and a small number of MS64 pieces. The present MS66 example is almost certainly the finest known of the variety, and perhaps the finest of any 1818/7 overdate variety. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
