1826 Misaligned Reverse Die -  O.101a R.2 AU


Henry’s note: Misaligned dies.  Reverse is the side struck off center.  While misaligned die bust halves are occasionally found, they are very rare with the reverse being the off center side.  This coin was likely struck with the reverse die being the hammer die (see my JRJ article that includes this coin).  A lustrous, high grade, coin.  From Sheridan Downey, June 2001.  

The only example I have handled with a misaligned reverse die.  The obverse is perfectly centered.  Lightly toned and gently wiped.  

Estimate: $1,000 and up
