Lot 379

1796 S-83 R4 Liberty Cap G5. Flipover Double Strike. Glossy very dark olive and steel with chocolate toning on the high points, the contrast helping bring out the details. The surfaces are decent but not perfectly smooth with microscopic roughness under the glossy patina. No verdigris or marks. Double struck. The first strike was slightly off center to K-11. The planchet was then reinserted into the press (flipped over) and struck normally. Much clear undertype is visible on both sides, including a complete 1796 date on the reverse where RICA would normally be located. A dramatic mint error with 2 full dates. Removed from an ANACS slab graded G6 (ANACS label included, and it shows the attribution and flipover double strike feature). DWH #3412.
Estimated Value $600-UP.
Ex 2007 EAC Sale, McCawley & Grellman Auctions 4/28/07:165.

Realized $1,006
