    1814 S-295, B-2 Cent, AU53
    Double Struck Reverse

    1814 1C Plain 4, S-295, B-2, R.1 -- Double Struck Reverse -- AU53 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Reynolds. Breen Die State V, an intermediate die state. A normally struck coin remained on the lower (reverse) die when another planchet entered the coining chamber and the press was cycled again. The result was this coin with the reverse doubled, and a second coin that was an obverse brockage showing a normal obverse impression and an incuse obverse impression in place of the reverse. Very slight rotation, perhaps 20 degrees, is evident between the two reverse strikes. Pleasing chocolate and chestnut-brown surfaces show only trivial marks including a hidden mark in the hair, and a few old nicks on the neck and bust. The reverse is choice. The wavy obverse is consistent with a coin that created a brockage. Our EAC grade XF45.
    Ex: St. Louis Coin Show (11/1988); Thomas D. Reynolds (Goldberg Coins, 1/2016), lot 331.
