Honduras, copper 1 centavo, 1908, small-pyramid type struck from 10-centavos dies with REPLBLICA error and denomination UN punched over 10, rotated axis, encapsulated NGC MS 62 BN, with WINGS silver sticker. Odd and interesting product of the sloppy Tegucigalpa mint, using 10-centavos dies from 1884-1900 with modified date and denomination, the UN / 10 overpunch quite bold, in fact the whole coin unusually deeply struck with full details, traces of original color and luster, rare this nice (and uncorroded). It also shows unaligned axes, the reverse rotated about 240 degrees relative to the obverse. This specimen is the only one graded by NGC so far and is therefore the finest in their census. Pedigreed to the Dana Roberts collection.
