|Title||1837 50C Reeded Edge, MS|
|Service Catalog #||6176|
1837 50C GR-20, R.3, MS62 NGC. CAC. The recutting on the 7 in the date and the pair of die lines in the hair above the clasp are the most obvious markers for the GR-20 variety. A small lump in the field near star 12 confirms the attribution. The 1837 date is the logical choice for type with 50 CENTS as the denomination, used only in 1836-37. This is an original and lustrous Mint State example, attractively toned and with CAC endorsement. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
