Asch? Bro? How many students? Help pls

Hey, how many participants did Asch have for his line length experiment? Is it 123 or 50? I keep seeing either.

"50 male students from Swarthmore College in America"
"The original experiment was conducted with 123 male participants."

BRO. How many are there I'm going insane! Is it that he had an original 1951 study with 50 then a 1955 study with 123? Is it the other way round? bruh
ANOTHER WEBSITE hAS JUST SAID ANOTHER NUMBER I AM LOSING MY MARBLES
I think 50's more prevalent in searches.
