||1787 1C Fugio "Cent" (c. 1860), Lead, Reverse Hub Trial MS63 NGC. Newman-DD. 317.2 grains. This reverse impression in lead is apparently unique, and may date to the time of the original Fugio production in 1787, or alternatively to sometime after Horatio Rust obtained pieces of Fugio dies in the middle of the 19th century. This is an extraordinarily important opportunity to acquire a unique piece for an advanced Fugio collection. Plated in the Eric P. Newman's 2008 reference, this piece is struck in lead with pewter-gray surfaces. Ex: New Netherlands Coin Co. (1/1952), lot 533; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
