Description

1861 Scott CSA Restrike Half, AU58
Better Defined Than Usual

1861 50C Scott Restrike AU58 NGC. Breen-8002. Only 500 restrikes were made by J.W. Scott in 1879. Since the die was 18 years old when it was used, considerable die rust can be seen scattered across the reverse. Scott produced these restrikes by purchasing 500 1861-O half dollars and planing off the reverses. Once the restriking had been done, the obverses were invariably weak from the pressure of the reverse die. This piece shows better definition than usually encountered. The surfaces are gray-brilliant and the obverse displays numerous small abrasions. Misattributed by NGC as a B-8001. Listed on page 395 of the 2012 Guide Book.
