    Desirable 1787 Fugio Silver Restrike, MS61

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, New Haven Restrike, Silver MS61 NGC. Newman 104-FF; probably R.6. In the January-February 1949 issue of The Coin Collector's Journal, Eric Newman's article "Varieties of the Fugio Cent" was published with excellent plates. At that time, Newman noted: "The 'New Haven' dies have been included in the pattern group. These dies, which were found in the Broome and Platt store located on the plot of ground in New Haven, Connecticut where the Fugio coins were struck, are still in existence. Although no original coin struck from the 'New Haven' dies is known, there are nineteenth century restrikes in copper and some in silver."
    Nearly 60 years later, the same author again examined the Fugio cent series. Today, Newman believes that new dies were manufactured circa 1859 by the Scoville Manufacturing firm, well-known makers of buttons, tokens, and medals.
    This silver piece ranks high among survivors, probably one of just a couple dozen known. It is only the fourth silver New Haven piece that we have handled in the last 15 years. It is fully lustrous with rich pewter and iridescent toning.
