Revisiting an old fave with a reholder (1811/10 Bustie)

5 posts in this topic

I remember when Mike King and I would PM each other for opinions about this coin or that. This was one of them. It just has that "look" an old coin should have. Got this back recently from a reholder submission, and now I can see it so much better. :banana:

I like it. The bottom serifs in AMERICA have more curvature than I'm use to seeing. Is that a unique die characteristic?


I have seen that characteristic on a few Busties. They punch those letters into each die by hand, and the punch used each time may be different or worn.
