Original $525 Doubled Die Reverse, Briggs Plate Coin, Mirrored Fields, Original Surfaces, Saw Mill Run Collection. The Saw Mill Run Seated quarter collection contains many surprises. Not only is the consignor an avid collector, he is a leading research of the series. This 1847 J-102 double die reverse die pairing just happens to be the Briggs’ plate coin and a rare die marriage. Bright light review exposes fairly sharp obverse mirrors that radiate crisp reflective luster while reverse fields have a frosty component. Untoned centers are surrounded by thin gold arc at the rims. Obverse strike is big and old while the reverse is typical of the die. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
