Description

1861 Confederate Reverse Restrike Half, AU55

1861 50C Scott Restrike AU55 PCGS. Breen-8002. In 1879, J.W. Scott obtained the reverse die for the Confederate half dollar from coin dealer Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr. Scott then located 500 1861-dated Seated halves, machined off the reverses, and restruck them with the Confederate reverse die. Because of this restriking on an already struck coin, all known examples show softness on the obverse devices. This flattening of the devices is a sacrifice that had to be made in order to bring up the reverse details. This is a dusky charcoal-gray representative with pleasing sharpness on the reverse (but a notably weak obverse) and only a hint of granularity. Listed on page 391 of the 2010 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2C4R, PCGS# 340402)
