Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike MS64 Brown NGC. A notorious issue that was struck circa 1860 with discarded and muled Mint dies. 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. The chocolate-brown color is attractive, and the only post-strike detraction is some apparent lacquer reside at 9:30 on the reverse.
