Description

1861 J.W. Scott Token, MS62
Confederate Half Reverse

1861 50C Scott Token MS62 NGC. Breen-8003. In 1879, leading rare coin dealer J.W. Scott purchased the original and lightly rusted C.S.A. half dollar die from Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., who in turn had obtained it from Dr. B. F. Taylor, a former Chief Coiner of the New Orleans Mint. Scott overstruck 500 1861-dated halves with the die after planing off the reverses, then paired the C.S.A. die with a 'token' die to strike another 500 pieces in white metal. This is a prooflike example of the latter striking, and it has light powder-blue color and a few faint hairlines. Listed on page 395 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 2 in 62, 1 finer (6/10). (PCGS# 340403)
