Honduras, copper 1 centavo, 1910, 5c obverse die and 1/2c reverse die, encapsulated NGC MS 64 BN, ex-Dana Roberts. Like the previous lot, this coin attests to the troubles at the Tegucigalpa mint, which created this coin from dies meant for two other, different denominations (5c obverse, 1/2c reverse), the modification to denomination and date on reverse quite obvious here, this specimen rather choice in strike (despite a rim-cud on reverse and corresponding weakness on other side) and preservation, with much original color and luster and no wear or marks at all, far better than just UNC (which KM values at $500) and presumably much better than Lissner's example (which was originally offered by Louis Hudson as graded XF). This specimen is also the only one graded by NGC so far and is therefore the finest in their census. Pedigreed to the Dana Roberts collection.
