Popular among collectors since the real 1804 is so rare. Made from a combination of altered 1803 obverse dies and 1820 reverse dies. Imagine this- the 1804 was so scarce and rare even back in 1820 that this restrike was produced. Pretty interesting.
A lovely near-gem example of this popular design type. Though technically a pattern issue, these are collected alongside the early small cents. We actually see less examples from 1857 in this condition than we do the more popular 1856. This fresh example displays lustrous, reflective fields with attractive, original surfaces.
