    Brockage 1807 Comet Cent S-271

    1807 1C Comet--Brockage--VG8 ANACS. S-271, B-1, R.1. The reverse is an incused and reversed impression of the obverse. This mint error occurs when a newly struck coin clings to the reverse die instead of getting ejected. A planchet is fed in between the obverse die and the previously struck coin, and the subsequent strike causes a brockage reverse. An unmarked medium brown example with a prominent "comet" die break above the hair ribbon. An S-271 appeared as lot 1059 in Richard Picker's collection of brockages (Coin Galleries, 5/89). EAC 6.(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 1531)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
