Select Mint State '1861' Scott Token
Struck in 1879 Using Confederate Half Die

1861 50C Scott Token MS63 ANACS. Breen-8003. Coin and stamp dealer J.W. Scott obtained the original Confederate half dollar die in 1879, and promptly put it to use. He stamped the planed reverses of 500 1861-O half dollars, then paired the Confederate die with an explanatory "token" obverse to strike an additional 500 white metal pieces. Both issues are widely collected today. The present well struck Scott token is toned chestnut-gray with smooth semi-prooflike fields. Listed on page 395 of the 2012 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2C4T, PCGS# 340403)
