Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike AU55 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. The leaves in the wreath reveal light wear, presumably from brief use as a pocket piece. Struck from broken, rusted, and sunken dies.
