Lot Description
1826 50C MS66+ S NGC. CAC. O-101a, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Both sides of this high-end Premium Gem display a central core of silver and golden-brown patina, framed by a vivid ring of violet toning. The dramatic toning gives the coin an attractive cameo effect. The design elements are sharply detailed and vibrant mint luster enhances the terrific eye appeal. We enjoyed and share NGC's reflections on this coin: {blockquote}This coin presents an example of how careful preservation can elevate the commonplace to something extraordinary. This die marriage is common across all grades through the lower range of Mint State in both prime and "a" die states. The Green-Newman coin, however, is worlds apart from examples normally seen. Boldly struck throughout, with just a touch of erosion at its peripheries, this delightful half dollar possesses dazzlingly frosty luster and simply breathtaking toning. These desirable features are combined with especially clean surfaces that will please both the series specialist and advanced type collector.{/blockquote} 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 @ $2.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
