Description

Details

One of 9 examples graded at this level with none higher by PCGS. A popular re-strike made in 1961 as a 100 year commemorative of the Confederate Cent where just a few were struck from the copper nickel alloy at the time. The Bashlow coins were struck transferred dies made from the cancelled original die. There was an interim re-strike as well probably in 1874 by Haseltine who it is reported struck 55 coins in copper before defacing the die which Bashlow acquired. After these coins were struck from the transfer die the original die was donated to the Smithsonian. The original coins and Haseltine re-striekes are scarce and beyond the means of most collectors with the Bashlow examples being the only really affordable Confederate coin of what might have been.
