Lot Description
1876 50C Indian Round 50 Cents, BG-1065, R.5--Double Struck Obverse--MS63 PCGS. A wonderful example of Mr. Henderson's exhaustive collection of errors. This semi-prooflike Period Two small denomination gold piece was struck twice by the dies. The obverse (hammer) die slightly rotated clockwise between strikes. The reverse (anvil) die was fixed. The double strike is most prominent on the stars, but the doubling is also dramatic on the profile of the Indian. Somewhat wavy, as made when the thin piece was removed from the dies. From The Henderson Collection of U.S. Gold Errors.
