    1920 Pilgrim Reverse Splasher in Lead, MS62
    Ex: George Morgan Estate

    1920 50C Pilgrim Reverse Splasher, J-A1920-1, Pollock-3553, MS62 PCGS. This curiosity is struck in lead over a 1923 Peru 5 Decimos Die Trial. All we know about this item comes from (thanks, Saul), where it is speculated that this is some sort of restrike, possibly made by George Morgan years after the actual striking of the commemorative coins. The piece is 45 mm in diameter, and the Pilgrim reverse impression is perfectly centered with a wide blank rim. The reverse shows a faint impression of the peripheral legends from the Peruvian die trial. The surfaces are light to medium gray and show considerable evidence of what appears at first to be die rust. However, close examination shows the raised, irregular surface to be on both sides of the piece, both struck and unstruck portions. An interesting study piece.
