Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike MS62 Brown NGC. The "restrike" 1804 cent was struck circa 1858 by a private party, from discarded dies sold by the Mint in 1833 as scrap metal. The dies were broken and badly rusted. The obverse date was altered from 1803 to 1804, as can be clearly seen on this specimen. The reverse die was formerly used to strike 1820 cents. Satiny and evenly struck with deep chocolate-brown toning. EAC 55.
