Interesting 1861 Scott Restrike Half Dollar, MS61

1861 50C Scott Restrike MS61 PCGS. J.W. Scott produced these interesting pieces in New York, of all places, in 1879. He obtained the reverse die for the Confederate half dollar from coin dealer Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr. Scott obtained 500 1861-dated Seated halves, machined off most of the reverses, and restruck them with the Confederate reverse die. This example is lustrous and untoned on the obverse, where the design details are typically mushy from the restriking process. The reverse, as usual, shows better design definition and displays a small amount of lilac toning near the left periphery. A few small abrasions and scattered flyspecks are observed on the obverse. Listed on page 379 of the 2008 Guide Book.
From The Northwest Collection. (NGC ID# 2C4R, PCGS# 340402)
