1807 S-276 R1 Large Fraction F15. Double Struck over Obverse Brockage. Glossy chocolate and dark steel brown. There are some tiny contact marks scattered over both sides and a small planchet chip close under the E in ONE. EDS with the reverse rotated 30 degrees CCW from the normal head-to-foot die orientation. Double struck over an obverse brockage, and both impressions are centered on the planchet. The obverse is clearly double struck but the offset between impressions is small, perhaps half the width of a dentil. The reverse was struck over an incuse brockage impression of the obverse, and the brockage aligns perfectly with the obverse. Strong incuse evidence of the brockage remains visible, including the date at OF. An attractive mint error that is plated on page 845 in Breen's large cent encyclopedia to illustrate a cent "Struck over Obverse Brockage."
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
Ex McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 7/27/03:60.

Realized $3,680
