1823 Silver Restrike Cent, MS63
Obverse of 1823, Reverse of 1813
Struck Circa 1860s
1823 1C Silver Restrike MS63 PCGS. Although listed in the pattern references as Judd-46, the 1823 "Restrike" large cents in copper and silver are most avidly collected by large cent aficionados. These pieces were produced from a muling of the 1823 Normal Date obverse die and the reverse die of 1813 S-293. Both dies actually still exist today, on loan to the ANA Museum in Colorado Springs.
As illustrated, both dies were extensively rusted and badly broken. The dies that were used for these so-called "Restrikes" were supposedly acquired by Joseph Mickley in the 1830s, when they were sold as scrap iron. He acquired many dies that were later combined to produce various unusual mulings, some mixing different denominations, and others like this variety that mixed different date dies of the same denomination. These pieces were probably made sometime in the 1860s or 1870s.
A silver example that was tested many years ago proved to be approximately sterling silver, rather than the usual coin silver. The present piece has bold design details with fully reflective fields on both sides. The pewter surfaces are accented by attractive sky-blue toning with traces or iridescence. It is one of a small number of survivors. We are unaware of any specific condition census for the silver restrikes, although we estimate a total surviving population of only five or six pieces. The present 1823 Silver Restrike cent is the only PCGS certified example (6/12). Our EAC grade MS60. (PCGS# 12202)
