Description & Analysis

The scarcity of this date prompted a 19th Century restrike produced privately from discarded U. S. Mint dies that had become rusted. The salvaged obverse of 1811 C-2 was paired with the reverse die of 1802 C-2, and this concoction is easily spotted for what it is, though many collectors have embraced it as a whimsical supplement to the half cent series.

Walter Breen estimated that about a dozen of these pieces were likely made in the 1850s. The dies later turned up in the estate of famed collector Joseph Mickley, but it's not known for certain whether he was the person responsible for the restrikes. Nevertheless, they are known today as Mickley Restrikes.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
