Reverse Brockage Maker
Glossy chocolate brown. Smooth with just a few trivial contact marks and nice eye appeal for the grade. The date is strong. What makes this piece special is that this piece was stuck to the obverse die when a new planchet was inserted, and the reverse was struck against the new planchet. There is no doubling on the obverse so this coin did not shift during the second strike, but the reverse suffered the usual swelling around the periphery that happens to a “brockage maker.” The legend outside the wreath is weak as a result.
