Description:
Surprising 1861-Dated Restrike
Confederate Half Dollar, MS62
1861 50C Scott Restrike MS62 PCGS. Breen-8002. After purchasing the Confederate half dollar reverse die in 1879, Scott struck (or restruck) 500 examples to go with the four originals by taking 1861-dated half dollars, planing off the reverses, and stamping on the Confederate reverse. This restriking process flattened out the details on the obverse, a key characteristic for both authentication of the restrikes and differentiating the restrikes from the extremely rare originals.
As expected, the reverse on this piece is sharp and the obverse flattened out. The sides have toned unevenly, with the Confederate side showing fields of violet and golden-tan color and the obverse having a dramatic dividing line that cuts horizontally from star 1 to star 13, separating the generally light silver-gray upper obverse from the deep violet color below. Listed on page 391 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 340402)
