1861 Scott Restrike Half Dollar, AU55
Popular Tribute Coin

1861 50C Scott Restrike AU55 NGC. Breen-8002. After seizing the New Orleans Mint in 1861, Confederate authorities unknowingly created a numismatic delicacy when they coined four half dollars from a Confederate reverse die. Many years later in 1879, coin dealer J.W. Scott acquired the die and set about making restrikes. He acquired 500 genuine 1861-O half dollars, planed off the reverse of each, and produced restrike half dollars such as this Choice AU example. In doing so, the obverse of each piece was partially obliterated and surviving examples are graded solely by the Confederate reverse design. This piece has still lustrous surfaces with pewter gray color and hints of gold toning. (NGC ID# 2C4R, PCGS# 340402)
