    Very Rare Mint State, Mint Error Fugio Cent

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, STATES UNITED, Cinquefoils--Double Struck, 22% Off Center--MS63 Brown PCGS. Newman 13-X, R.1. A remarkable mint error showing a clear double impression on each side, the obverse being particularly sharp. This was probably caused when the coin was only partially ejected from the dies after the first striking and was struck a second time while still partially in place. Both the date and MIND YOUR BUSINESS are clearly duplicated on the obverse side. The planchet is quite smooth and ample hints of original red color remain in the protected areas of the obverse. A rare opportunity for the advanced colonial collector.
    From the Wesley Van Olden Collection of Colonial Coinage.
