    1861 Haseltine Restrike Confederate Cent
    Copper, PR63 Red and Brown

    1861 CSA Cent, Copper Restrike PR63 Red and Brown PCGS. Breen-8008. In 1874, John W. Haseltine surprised the numismatic community. He had acquired the dies for the hitherto-unknown 1861 Confederate cent, engraved by prolific Philadelphia diesinker Robert Lovett, Jr. He also purchased ten original copper-nickel strikings from these dies, and made restrikes in copper, gold, and silver. According to Haseltine's April 2 advertisement, "Our intention was to strike 500 in copper, but after the 55th impression the collar burst and the dies were badly broken." Many years later, Robert Bashlow struck further restrikes, but those all show heavy die cancel marks.
    The present copper Haseltine restrike example is more red than brown, all the devices have mellowed with time. The surfaces are unabraded and display only microscopic carbon. Listed on page 379 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 63 Red and Brown, 3 finer (11/07).
    Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/99), lot 2075.
