Lot Description
1804 1C Restrike MS65 Brown PCGS. A notorious issue that was struck circa-1860 from muled Mint dies that had been 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. This unabraded and prooflike example is powder-blue and peach-gold. Population: 2 in 65, 3 finer (5/08). EAC 63.
