1808/7 50C O-101, R.1, XF45 NGC. CAC. Although struck from cracked and clashed dies, this Choice XF half is an earlier die state than many examples, lacking a fully formed parallel bust-to-star 3 die crack. The fields are generally smooth and faintly lustrous, with only scattered tiny marks. Moderate wear confirms the assigned grade. John Reich's design was easy on the eyes but hard on dies, and it was modified the following year. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
