Reverse: L (Second Marriage, first used on O-123 from 1832 (rev L 1832))
NGC Graded XF45. A pleasingly original coin with deep gray toning, and luster that is close to an AU. There are quite of few coin to coin contact marks that may keep it from a higher grade.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars show considerable detail but not really sharp. Stars 8 and 13 are 1/2 mm. from cap and curl. Date is 8 mm.1 has a short serif and sharply higher than 8. Mouth slightly open. Star 10 shows a bit of recutting at 2 points. Do not confuse with Obverse 11. An opening in hair curl above second 3 in date.
Reverse- 50 C. is 1 3/4 mm. and high, with the 5 much higher than 0. Arrow to A is slightly less than 1/2 mm. I is centered under left side of T. R is higher at base than adjacent I. A1 is recut at right base.
