5C 1866/1866 REPUNCHED DATE FD-301. PCGS MS65. FROM THE GERALD R. FORSYTHE COLLECTION WOW! What a really COOL coin! The repunching of the date is bold and visible to the naked, unaided eye and the dies on both sides were pretty much shattered when this one was produced. Tied for FINEST graded for the issue, this coin has a lot to like about it. The surfaces are frosty and softly toned with an antique pewter-sliver patina. The strike is decent for the issue, especially when you consider how damaged the dies were when this coin was struck. There are numerous die cracks on both sides, it is amazing to think that the dies held together long enough to make this GEM. The eye appeal is really neat. PCGS 2, NGC 3. The most recent sold in a weaker market, realizing $17,624 in February 2016--essentially six years ago! The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $18,000 and we suspect, as one of the FINEST KNOWN, this lovely original GEM will entice strong bidding from the specialist collector. Good luck! Cert.
