25mm - 14 struck

Both dies were cut in 1867 and sold to J.W. Kline in 1872. The dies were sold in a June 2008 Heritage auction for $1314.

Bolen struck 14 examples in Brass. Kline also struck a few examples in this metal. It is fairly easy to tell the restrikes from the originals. The originals are 2.2 to 3.0 mm thick. The restrikes are only 1.5 to 2.0 mm in thickness. The piece pictured is a Kline restrike that was offered on EBAY in May of 2011. It was graded NGC-65 and brought $425.
