Choice Confederate States of America Scott Token1861 50C Confederate States of America Token PR64 NGC. Breen-8003. In 1879, leading rare coin dealer J.W. Scott purchased the original and lightly rusted C.S.A. half dollar die from Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., who in turn had obtained it from Dr. B. F. Taylor, a former Chief Coiner of the New Orleans Mint. Scott overstruck 500 1861-dated halves with the die after planing off the reverses, then paired the C.S.A. die with a 'token' die to strike another 500 pieces in white metal. This is a prooflike example of the latter striking, and it has light dove-gray color and problem-free surfaces.(#340403) (PCGS# 340403)
