1924 50C Huguenot -- Rev Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. This issue commemorates the settlement of Huguenots and Walloons at the New Netherland colony in New York. However, the portraits of Admiral Gaspard de Coligny and William the Silent relate to the French Wars of Religion rather the 1624 landing. A total of 142,000 coins were sold, plus 80 coins for assaying. Both sides are brilliant with frosty luster and light border toning. NGC notes that the reverse is improperly cleaned, signs of which are not overly apparent. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
