CopperPlated 1879 Half Dollar

This piece is apparently a copper plated piece struck from copy dies. The image appearing in lot 892 in Goldberg's 8/14 sale shows many raised dots in the fields on both sides suggesting that the coin may have been struck from cast dies. It later appeared at lot 1154 in Goldberg's 2/20 sale.
