Description:

Mint State 1861 Scott Restrike Half Dollar
1861 50C Scott Restrike MS61 PCGS. Breen-8002. The so-called Scott Restrikes of the extremely rare (four known) Confederate half dollars were produced to the extent of 500 pieces, all overstruck (supposedly) in 1879 on 1861-O half dollars, some of which were circulated. (These were struck on planed-off reverses, so today it is impossible to identify any O mintmark that might once have been on the reverse.) On this example, as always, the obverse is weak from the restriking. The surfaces display medium-density gray toning overall, with surprisingly good underlying luster. A couple of short, darker-gray grease stains appear in the reverse center. A few abrasions are noted, mostly on the obverse. A fascinating memento of one of the dark pages from our country's history, listed on page 391 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 23 in 61, 44 finer (3/10). (PCGS# 340402)
