Lot 412

1805 S-269 R1 Pointed 1 G5. Double Struck over Obverse Brockage. Slightly sharper with about 10 rim nicks on the reverse, and half of those are strong. In addition, there is a tiny rim bruise left of the head and a few faint hairline scratches on the portrait. Glossy chocolate brown. Double struck. The initial strike was a properly centered obverse brockage impression, and the second was normal but rotated 30 degrees CW relative to the first. The brockage obverse from the first strike is under the normal reverse. The date from the first strike shows left of the normal date and the incuse brockage date is visible where STATE would show if it was not worn smooth (the incuse date remains visible because it is better-protected). A neat error in spite of the low grade displaying 3 dates: 2 normal and 1 incuse.
Estimated Value $500-UP.
Ex Michael Arconti, McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 7/27/03:58.

Realized $1,093
