Description & Analysis

Cent coinage was heavy in 1850, though down about 30% from its peak in 1847-48. There are no popular varieties for this date, and examples are readily available in all grades through MS BN. A fairly large number of red or red-brown coins survivor for the advanced collector.

Of 28 numbered Newcomb die marriages, N-8 has been deleted as non-existant, while N-10 and N-16 have been found to be simply late die states of N-21 and -19, respectively. Rare varieties include N-18, -20, -21 and N-24 through -28. N-13 is illustrated.
