st: questions about histogram

I'm having trouble with 2 elements in a histogram.

The first issue is that  I cannot prevent the last bin from combining
the frequency/percent of the highest x axis categories.

The second issues is that  I would like to just add labels to some of
the bins--not all of them, it's too cluttered that way.  Here's an
example script of what I'm talking about

set mem 100m
sysuse auto
bys foreign: g counter = _n
tab counter for

*!! notice how there is only a frequency of 1 for the last bin at 52,
but no matter how large I make the xscale , it always combines these
last two into the last bin with width set to 1.

hist counter   , normal  addl width(1)  start(1) freq  ///
normopts(lcolor(dimgray))   xscale(range(1 100)) yscale(range(1 4)) ///
plotregion(margin(small)) graphregion(margin(vsmall))
addlabopts(mlabsize(small) mlabangle(forty_five)) ylabel(minmax)
