O.122 R1. Newman. CAC. "The Finest O-122 Half Dollar, MS66. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. One of only three (of twenty-three) 1830 die pairs to feature a Large 0 in the date. The others are O-121 and O-123. This example offers sumptuous toning, great depth of luster and winning eye appeal. Album storage contributed a diaphanous veil of lavender-gray toning to the centers surrounded by halos of lime-green, lilac, and amber. The coin is beautifully impressed with spotless, unsullied surfaces. As a Premium Gem, the Newman coin is unmatched for the O-122 die pair. We located one other 1830 Large 0 NGC graded MS66 and but one PCGS graded MS66. The former an 1830 O-121, the latter an 1830 O-123. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P.
