C-6 Choice New Price
$1600
Spiked Chin, Early Die State C-6, Rich Chocolate Brown Surfaces, Mark Free for Grade, Bold Diagnostics, Hill Collection. An early die state Cohen-6 example with die cracks from the denomination into (UNI)TED and at the tops of letters in AMERICA. Surfaces are essentially blemish free for the assigned grade. Strike is very well executed. Overall, this is an attractive example with bold obverse diagnostics. For those new the Draped Bust half cents, the 1804 Spiked Chin is an interesting die state when damage occured to an obverse die, resulting in a sharp, spike-like projection jutting out from Liberty's chin. The Spiked Chin obverse is paired with four different dies (Cohen 5 through Cohen 8). Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. A strong offering from the Hill Collection that has been off the market for at least 15 years.

Choice $425 Choice Original, Feuchtwanger Token, Woodlands Collection. A choice example of the one cent Feuchtwanger token. Just a touch of rub on the obverse eagle's shoulder is visible. A very well struck example with crisp eagles feathers. Wikipedia provides an explanation on why Feuchtwanger tokens were struck and circulated during the "Hard Times". The Feuchtwanger Cent was a "German Silver" private token coin circulated by Lewis Feuchtwanger during the 1830-40s in the U.S. Three cent varieties were also available, though not as plentiful as the one cent tokens. The tokens were originally created as patterns to demonstrate a new type of metal for coinage, however when these proposals failed, they were temporarily used by the public during depressions to accommodate a small change shortage.
