1805 C-1 R2-. NGC graded AU-55. Glossy mix of light chocolate and darker olive brown. The surfaces are smooth and void of any notable marks. This piece was double struck in the collar. The first strike was normal but the coin failed to eject before a second planchet was inserted into the press. This piece was struck a second time on the obverse by the obverse die but the reverse was pressed against the new blank planchet creating an incuse reverse impression on that planchet (a reverse brockage). The second obverse impression is rotated 30 degrees clockwise relative to the first, and a clear impression of Ms. Liberty's profile from the first strike shows on the face and hair of the second strike. Additional evidence of the first strike can be found elsewhere on Ms. Liberty, but the rotated profile on her face is obvious to the unaided eye. A beautiful example of an early mint error. Our grade is EF40+. The double struck with rotation feature is noted on the NGC label.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.

Realized $1,680
