Lot 961861 Confederate Cent. Silver Restrike. Choice Uncirculated. Mintage 5,000.
Estimate $75 - 100.
Lot 971861 Confederate Half Dollar. Restrike. PCGS graded MS-62. Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., an early Philadelphia collector became aware of chief coiner's specimen of the original Confederate half dollar and purchased it from the coiner and the reverse die used to strike the Confederate halves. Mason then sold the coin and die to well known New York stamp and coin dealer, J.W. Scott, who manufactured his own "Confederate" halves by planing down the reverses of genuine 1861-dated U.S. half dollars and stamping the blanked sides with the Confederate reverse die. This process created the flattened obverses which have become a signature of the Scott Restrikes. A stunning coin with a tiny Mintage of only 500 examples. Particularly rare in this high grade. (PCGS Pop. 28 in MS-62, only 19 graded higher, the highest grade being seven MS-64 examples. Total of 108 in all grades, 10/18/11).
Estimate $5,000 - 7,500.
Lot 981861 Confederate Half Dollar. Scott Token Obverse. PCGS graded MS-62. In 1879, leading rare coin dealer J.W. Scott purchased the original and lightly rusted C.S.A. half dollar die from Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., who in turn had obtained it from Dr. B. F. Taylor, a former Chief Coiner of the New Orleans Mint. Scott overstruck 500 1861-dated halves with the die after planing off the reverses, then paired the C.S.A. die with a 'token' die to strike another 500 pieces which he sold in October 1879 for 50 cents each. These tokens were struck in a white metal that Breen (1988) asserts is probably tin. (PCGS Pop. 20 in MS-62, only 37 graded higher, the highest grade being two MS-65 examples, and a total of 64 in all grades, 9/24/11).
Estimate $1,500 - 2,000.
