Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike MS64 Brown NGC. Generous glimpses of mint red surround the deep steel-brown centers. The 'restrike' 1804 is a notorious issue struck circa-1860 from muled Mint dies sold as steel scrap. The rarity of the official 1804 cent, known from a single die pair, created demand that was partly met by this contemporaneously condemned private restrike. Struck from broken and heavily rusted dies. EAC 63.
