    Rare Restrike

    1811 1/2c PCGS/CAC MS66 BN (Mickley Restrike)

    Next Bid: $38,900.00
    Closes: 10D 14H

    An extremely rare restrike with the obverse of 1811 and reverse of 1802! About a dozen examples of this Mickley Restrike are estimated to exist of which the present offering is the finest known with CAC approval. This was a private creation coined sometime in the late 1850s from retired coinage dies Mickley obtained from a dealer who had purchased them from the Mint as "scrap iron". Struck from slightly rusty dies both sides show heavy die rust. The precisely struck surfaces offer outstanding eye appeal! Mahogany-brown coloration coats both sides with plenty of original red-orange along the obverse rim and subtle purple undertones present throughout. A great rarity that seldom comes to market, this piece is certainly worthy of a strong bid! <br /><br />Ex: William F. Dunham Collection (B. Max Mehl, 6/1941), lot 1269; Belden E.

    PCGS # 37384. The FS-302 variety is quite a bit scarcer than the FS-301, though not as searched for. A wonderful example of this very popular and scarce variety, only three PCGS example have been graded finer! Lovely, original olive-gold and tan coloration span both sides with satiny luster illuminating the clean fields. Well-struck with bold to sharp definition throughout. Nice!
