    Mormon Ten Dollar Restrike, Unc Details
    Unique Uniface Obverse Copper-Gilt Example, K-4

    (1849) $10 Mormon Ten Dollar, Uniface Obverse Gilt Copper Restrike, K-4, Unique -- Mount Removed -- NGC Details. Unc. A single uniface copper-gilt restrike is known for the obverse (K-4) of this iconic Mormon gold issue. The reverse is also known in a single gilt specimen (K-4a). The restrikes were probably made circa 1898, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the California Gold Rush. The gilt specimens had wires attached to their backs to facilitate mounting on poster boards. This sharply detailed, unworn example has been removed from its mount. An interesting rim cud shows on the obverse, from 10-12 o'clock. Oddly, the images of the K-4 and K-4a in Don Kagin's series reference seem to have been switched.
