Description 1788 1/2 C Massachusetts Half Cent XF45 NGC. R. 1-B, W-6010, R.2. Despite the light granularity, this is a pleasing example of the plentiful 1788 Ryder 1-B half cent, with steel-brown surfaces and faint bluish overtones. A small mark is noted below the right foot on the obverse, with another in the upper obverse field. A few other trivial marks are consistent with the grade. This is an excellent type example for someone who seeks the Green-Newman provenance. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,116.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
