    Cancelled 1855 Kellogg Gold Relic Restrike Dies
    The Dies for Used on the Uncirculated Pieces

    1855 MS Kellogg & Co. Relic Gold Restrike Dies. An interesting pair of dies that was used to produce the business strikes of the gold restrikes based on the 1855 Kellogg fifties. Several Kellogg and Humbert ingots from the salvaged ship S.S. Central America were sliced in such a way that only the face of the bar remained. The bullion was then used to produce restrikes that resemble 1855 Kellogg fifties. Both proofs and business strikes were made. In this sale, we also have a set of four business strikes from each of the four days of issue: 8/26/01, 9/3/01, 9/7/01, and 9/12/01.
    These dies show no trace of polish in the fields and display a fine-grain texture seen on the circulation strikes. The reverse die is undated, which enabled its usage for all four striking periods. The date was hand-stamped into each individual coin. Each die is cancelled with a rim-to-rim X. As an interesting sidenote, the dies are slightly magnetic. A unique offering.
