Interesting error, so this was struck on a previously struck large cent scrap?

Just a single die marriage is known for 1800 Half Cents, and it utilizes a reverse die of the 1795-97 style. A few 1800 Half Cents are known on mis-struck cents that were cut down to size for recycling purposes. These are rare, and most of this mintage was coined on superior planchets provided by Matthew Boulton & Company in England.

There are no comparison Coins that Sold, looking to see what people think it's worth, I understand it takes 2 people or more to bid in a Sale. Just wanted to get some thoughts from Coin Collectors and Dealers.

I wonder why they call it an error, this was done intentionally. Planchets were shipped from England and deliveries were sometimes late and hard to get. Rather than waste ruined large cent planchets they were cut down and used for Half Cents. This was a documented process.

The Scrap Planchets were to be rolled out and sized and weighed. They made the Error by not having a smooth Clear surface is why they are classified as Error.

Breen first discussed the 1800 Half Cents struck on cut down spoiled cent in his book in 1983. At that time there were about 4 such pieces known making it an R-7, today it would probably be considered an R-6+

Have no idea. It's a common date and variety but a very rare subvariety. The problem is there aren't a whole lot of people that actively collect this type of thing. So it is a case of a rare item with not a whole lot of demand. It's worth more than one not struck on a spoiled cent but how much more I don't know.

I check the Davy's Collection of error Half Cent that Goldburg sold on Sept 19, 2010 to see if he had one. He had five of the 8 known at that time. Prices ranged from $1,100 to $2,300 and none of them were high grade.
