Description:
Seldom-Seen 1849 Uniface Mormon Obverse
Die Trial in Copper
, K-4
MS65 Red and Brown
1849 P$5 Mormon Obverse Die Trial MS65 Red and Brown NGC. K-4, High R.7. All the 1849, 1850, and 1860 Mormon issues were restruck as commemorative issues in 1898 on the 50th anniversary of their issuance. They were all struck in copper, and some are also known in lead. All have reeded edges. This is a copper uniface impression of the obverse of the first design type from 1849. The clasped hands in the center are especially well defined. The surfaces have an interesting mixture of cherry-red and deep blue. The pimply evidence of die rust is scattered over the obverse from the use of 50-year old dies. The surfaces are free from any evidence of contact or rough handling.
From The McCoy Family Collection of U.S. Patterns. (PCGS# 10278)
