    Description

    1804 Restrike MS 64 Red and Brown NGC. According to Breen, these coins were struck about 1858 by a person or persons unknown, possibly Mickley or Dickeson, from discarded dies sold by the mint in 1833 as scrap metal. The dies were badly rusted and required retouching. The obverse date was altered from 1803 to 1804, while the reverse is from an 1820 issue. This coin retains quite a bit of mint flash, especially on the obverse. This coin exhibits all of the normal striking characteristics of the Restrike. (NGC ID# 224J, PCGS# 1505)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
