    Description

    1808 AU 50. Cleaned. Double Struck. Not only is this a rare, one-year type but this coin is a double struck error as well. As such, it is of the highest rarity and should be of interest to the advanced error collector or advanced gold type collector who wishes to own a variant striking of this rare issue. Both sides show the double striking, but it is more obvious on the obverse. On the obverse there is a plain double profile of Liberty, a second impression, superimposed on the cheek of the final impression and the denticles show plainly through the upper stars on the left side and the upper portion of the cap. On the reverse a second impression of the upper left wing can be seen from the eagle's beak into the scroll, and a second impression of the scroll can be seen through the upper letters in the legend. A fascinating error of this very rare date, and a lot that is sure to provoke much discussion among all who view it. (NGC ID# BFVZ, PCGS# 7660)
