    Silver 1861 Uniface Confederate Cent Splashers by Bashlow

    Bashlow Uniface 1861 Confederate Cent Splashers. Struck circa 1961 by Robert Bashlow, from a hub made from the original 1861 Confederate cent dies, which by then were (per Breen) "defaced with chisel marks and hammer blows, but still marginally fit for use." Two uniface pieces, one each of the obverse and reverse, well centered on a broad (32 mm, 12.5 gm) silver planchet. The designs are reversed and incused, since the impressions are from a hub instead of the actual cent dies. After these and similar splashers were made, the hub was presumably then used to make working dies, which apparently produced the Breen-8009 to Breen-8019 restrikes.
