The coin is graded AU53 by NGC and has a stunning look on the reverse especially which appears much higher grade. The 1803 50C is an extremely rare coin in mint state with only 6 examples graded thus by PCGS and 3 by NGC. Even in About Uncirculated condition, NGC has only graded 4 examples!! I was struck by the originality and eye appeal in this tough coin and perfect example of the type. A nicely toned PCGS AU50 sold for $3960 in May 2023, while a more unattractive, dark and heavily cleaned/retoned example sold at Stacks for $3360 in November. Then a PCGS VF35 sold for $5500 on eBay in June 2024! The NGC price guide has the issue listed for $6000 and the CPG guide lists it at $4000. Perfect for anyone looking for a great example of this draped bust type
