A beautiful mint state example of this wildly popular Confederate States restrike half dollar token. 500 of these were struck around 1879 using the original dies from the original CSA half dollars (struck on the reverse side of a Seated half dollar). The other sides of the token features a custom design by JW Scott who created who was responsible for all of the 1879 CSA restrikes (including penny, half dollar). Over the years, these have become increasingly popular and sought-after from collectors who specialize in coinage of the Confederacy and Civil War History. Most of the examples we see of this issue are dark and mottled. This coin is the exception with white, prooflike surfaces.
