||1787 1C Fugio "Cent" (c. 1860), New Haven Restrike, White Metal, Obverse Die Impression MS64 NGC. Newman-102. 74.2 grains. This obverse die impression shows the sundial on its base, the meridian sun with rays, and the border, with no other details. This piece is plated in Eric P. Newman's 2008 Fugio reference where it is described as aluminum, but the weight suggests white metal as recorded by NGC. This piece and that in the next lot are impressions made from the obverse/reverse hub impressions that were sold as lot 317 in the October 2003 Ford sale. Bright pewter-gray surfaces are essentially as made, reportedly by Sylvester S. Crosby. Ex: Virgil M. Brand; Richard Picker (4/26/1957); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
