    1850-D Two and a Half, MS61
    Ex: Green Pond Collection

    1850-D $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 13-N (formerly 13-M). The present 1850-D quarter eagle is the plate coin for the issue in the second edition of Douglas Winter's Dahlonega Mint gold coin reference. Formerly part of the famous Green Pond collection, it represents the usual '50-D variety with the 0 in the date close to the shoulder tip. Both sides display medium to deep orange toning with lighter lime-green shades near the rims. Well struck for a Southern gold issue. Smooth for the designated grade aside from a faint cluster of small marks on the field below the hairbun. From a mintage of 12,148 pieces, the 1850-D is highly elusive in Mint State. Census: 8 in 61, 2 finer (11/14).
    Ex: Green Pond Collection (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 1028, which realized $11,500.(Registry values: P2)
