1807 C-1 R1 G4. Double Struck with Rotation, Reverse Brockage Maker. Several points sharper but there are numerous contact marks. These include some fine scratches on the obverse, several small rim dents at UNIT, and a shallow dig at the top of the ribbon bow under the N in CENT. Mostly glossy chocolate and steel brown. The date and legends are complete and clear. Double struck, and both strikes were centered on the planchet. The second impression was rotated 15 degrees CCW relative to the first and strong evidence of the double strike shows on the face where the lips of the second strike show above the tip of the nose from the first (dominant) strike. Additional but less obvious doubling shows on the bust and ribbons. There is no trace of doubling on the reverse. Instead of being struck by the reverse die during the second strike, that side was pressed into a new blank planchet thereby creating an incuse reverse brockage impression. Subtle swelling from being struck against the new planchet shows on the reverse, strongest at the top of the fraction which is opposite the strongest part of the second strike on the obverse. The error is obvious to the unaided eye in spite of the low grade. MDS, Manley state 2.0. Davy #07.1.17.
Estimated Value $100-UP.
Provenance: Ex Don Valenziano 6/19/1989.
