JAB-36 New York Cent Fascimile Copper
28mm - 40 struck
The dies were cut in 1869. They were canceled and give to the Boston Numismatic Society. They are currently unaccounted for.

The Bolen copies can be distinguished from the originals in a number of ways. The copies have nine feathers in the Indian's headress, while the originals have only seven. The copies also have perfect A's, while the originals show a break at the upper left portion of the letters.

This piece is graded NGC-66 and is probably the finest JAB-36 in existence. It sold in the April 2014 Heritage sale for $1410. lot 3811.
