Deep golden-tan with splashes of "mint" orange in the protected areas, especially on the reverse. Uniform raised die rust spot throughout both sides, heaviest in the reverse rings. Thought for decades to be from original dies that were found in the store of Broome & Platt in New Haven Connecticut, the die work of the "restrikes" is somewhat finer and more uniform than would have been possible given the technical abilities of the 1780s. Jim Spilman of the Colonial News Letter thought these dies to be products of the Scovill Minting manufactory, in business in the 1850s and later in Waterbury, Connecticut. Choice for the grade and worthy of a premium bid.
