1823 Restrike in Silver. PCGS graded MS-63. Light silvery gray with bluish steel overtones and hints of iridescent rose in the fields. No spots or stains, and the only contact marks are two rim nicks or tiny cuts on the rim at ST in STATES. LDS with all the known die cracks, including the final one down through the T & E in STATES. Less than a dozen known struck in silver, and only a half dozen or so of those are accounted for today. Breen says these silver restrikes were made in 1879 for John W. Haseltine and possibly later for Stephen K. Nagy. The late die state suggests these silver versions were made at or near the end of this "whimsy." Noyes photo #20574. Weight 162.8 grains. Our grade is MS60+. Pop 1; The finest of only 2 graded at PCGS for the variety. The other is the Naftzger example. DWH #1931.
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
Ex P. E. Wickes, M. H. Bolender 12/30/1948:575-R. E. Naftzger, Jr. (via Bill Noyes) 3/31/2001.
