    1787 New Haven Restrike Fugio Cent
    Rarely Seen MS66 Red and Brown

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, New Haven Restrike, Copper MS66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Breen-1320, Newman 104-FF. The New Haven Restrike is technically a 19th century Fugio cent reproduction, although it has long been collected as part of the Fugio cent series, and is listed on page 84 of the 2011 Guide Book. The narrow rings identify this well-made issue. The reverse die rust and pronounced die sinking across the central obverse are also characteristic of the issue. This specimen features surfaces that are almost equally divided between red and brown and blazing mint-red coloration. Specialists know that the New Haven Restrike is rare with significant red color, and indeed, a large majority of certified pieces are given a Brown designation by PCGS and NGC. Further, the New Haven Restrike is rare at the MS66 level, with none certified as such by NGC, and only six pieces graded as such by PCGS, two as MS66 Brown and four pieces as MS66 Red and Brown (7/10).
