Comments



In 1946, there is one coin with notches in the rim and one without (some remaining notches are still visible).




Note: Small letter H on the reverse is not a mintmark. All the coins of 1918-1924, with this letter or without it, were minted in Bogotá

Varieties exist for 1950 B: small 50 in date, large 50 in date (scarce), and very large 50 in date (rare).
