Mule JAB W-07 WASHIGTON / APOLLO GARDENS Copper
28mm - Estimate that three were struck

This variety consists of the Obverse of JAB-14 muled with a Merriam Apollo Gardens reverse. The Bolen die was cut in 1864 and sold to McCoy. The reverse die is believed to have been cut by Merriam in 1863. Both dies are unaccounted for.

The Pennsylvania Historical Society has an example in their collection. If in fact three examples were struck, there are only two other possible pieces available to the collecting community. The piece pictured was sold in a Hayden 2016 auction.
