1795 50C 2 Leaves, O-119, T-1, R.4 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Tompkins Die State 2/1. The omnipresent pellet-like die lump above star 15 is the usual pick-up point for the Overton-119 variety. An equally diagnostic die line from E in AMERICA to the adjacent wingtip often goes unnoticed. While this coin was cleaned at some point in the past, pleasing silver-gray surfaces deepen to slate-gray shades at the borders. Sharply struck centers show only brief wear. The fields are mostly smooth and unmarked despite some remnant delicate lines and small ticks. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $40.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
