    New Haven Restrike in Gold

    "1787" Fugio Cent--New Haven Restrike in Gold--XF 40 Holed. Breen-1323. 12.80 grams. These curiosities were struck around 1860 from copy dies. According to Major Rust only one piece was struck in gold. If his statement was correct then the few other pieces known in gold would have been restruck at a later date. This is indeed what appears to have happened with this piece as the reverse shows die rust. The central devices are quite blurry and it appears to have been carried as a pocket piece for some time. Holed at 1 o'clock on the obverse.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 787)
