1832 50C Small Letters, O-102a, R.3, MS62 NGC. Missing tail feathers, threadlike stems to the leaves and berries, and misshapen arrowheads all are diagnostics for the scarce late die stage of O-102a. This sharp, Uncirculated example displays deep-blue and brick-red toning with silvery iridescence at the borders. The Small Letters legend is snug to the dentils, often a confusing factor when attributing the O-102a variety. 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 @ $2.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
