1804 Draped Bust Silver Dollar - Mint-Made Electrotype Copy
These are actually official Mint-made reproduction copies of the Unique 1804 Draped Bust Silver Dollar Restrike of the Class II (Class 2) type. The electrotype coin was struck on copper and then plated with silver. Some of the underlying copper can be seen on the surface of the coin. This coin also has the word "COPY" on the reverse of the coin between the eagle tail feathers and the word "AMERICA". Only around 4 of these are known to exist and they are nowhere near as valuable as the real deal - but they are still worth well over $10
