(1961) CSA Goldine Bashlow Restrike Defaced Dies 1C

Certified NGC MS68

A very interesting history behind these restrikes. They were made in 1961 by Robert Bashlow, who used the original dies made by engraver Robert Lovett. Lovett cancelled (defaced) the dies due to fear of being charged with treason for aiding the Confederacy. The hammer blows and chisel marks he made on the dies are clearly visible in these restrikes. After minting the restrikes, the dies were donated to the Smithsonian, where they still remain today.
