I just bought this coin. Some had claimed that it was fake or a garage job, so I decided to buy it and examine it in hand. This coin had a planchet defect that was hidden under the surface. It circulated for years until it was in F condition. Then one day something fell on the reverse at 2:00. The coin was sitting on another coin, so there was a design transfer on the opposite side of the hit. This caused the coin to ring and resonate with such vigor that the planchet defect exacerbated and nearly broke the coin into two pieces. The two pieces hung by a thread, but a slight bending force caused the bridge to break. In an attempt to put the coin back into circulation, the owner tried to crimp the two pieces back together, but it did not hold. I find it truly amazing that the two pieces managed to stay together for 150 years. This is one of those rare coins where all of the marks and damage helps tell the story of this coin. Since I buy coins with interesting stories, this coin fits really well with my collection.
