    Rare Restrike

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

    Next Bid: $38,900.00
    Closes: 11D 9H

    An extremely rare restrike with the obverse of 1811 and reverse of 1802! About example of this Mickley Restrike a dozen 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.
