Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike MS62 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. Chocolate-brown in color, the surfaces are unblemished aside from a spot near the D in UNITED and pinpoint obverse spots at 5 and 7 o'clock and beneath the hair ribbon.
