The 1850-O is a median rarity in the New Orleans No Motto series. It is most similar in overall rarity to the 1848-O and the 1854-O Small Date. In AU grades, the 1850-O is scarce and it is not often seen with natural color and choice surfaces.

This coin appears to be quite choice for the grade and if it were just a touch more lustrous, it would have graded at least AU53 if not AU55. It shows a typical soft strike at the centers and on the stars but the surfaces are clean and they show nice natural color which is deepest surrounding the devices.

Only two PCGS AU50 examples have sold at auction since August 2010 and the last one with CAC approval brought $3,290 as Heritage 6/13: 5784. The current example is clearly choicer.

CAC has approved three in this grade with seven finer.
