Let's focus on what you mean by "histogram". I would understand by that
what Stata understands: a display using touching bars of a binned
distribution for one variable. The display could show densities, or
counted frequencies, or fractions, or percents. 

If that really is what you want, then you need to feed e(b) into a new
variable and then call -histogram-.  

Here is some technique: 

sysuse auto, clear
xi : regress mpg i.rep78
mat b = e(b)
mat li b
gen b = .
qui forval i = 1/4 {
	replace b = b[1,`i'] in `i'
histogram b

I think with 50 you would possibly be better off with a different
display, one which names each variable.

I have a regression on some 50 dummy variables, whose coefficients I
like to display in a histogram.
