There were 500 restrikes of the Confederate half dollar made, they average between $4,000 - $8,000 now. The reverse has the Confederate States of America with a shield in the middle and Half dollar on the bottom of the reverse side. The other was a restrike of 500 Scott half dollars worth between $1,700 - $3,500. The Scott half dollars were made by J.W. Scott a New York coin dealer in 1879 who bought the original Confederate dies in the 1870's. The coins were struck with a Scott advertising inscription and the Confederate insignia on the reverse.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Paul: Well, what do you think, Perry?
        Perry: An unsigned letter, an odd coin neither of us ever knew existed, two-minute wait under a street sign, phone ringing in a certain downtown phone booth, sounds like a spy melodrama. I suggest you spend the afternoon shopping for a trenchcoat.
        Paul: Think I'm sticking my neck out?
        Perry: I honestly don't know. It's just bizarre enough to be legitimate and after all, sticking your neck out is your business, isn't it, Paul?
