Description & Analysis

Production of this non-circulating coin rebounded in 1866 for reasons unknown, but it is still a scarce issue. Most survivors are Mint State and prooflike to some degree. The example illustrated reveals bold die-clash impressions on both sides, along with signs of vigorous die polishing to remove these marks.

A minor repunched date variety exists, but there is no interest in varieties of this scarce and expensive issue.
