(circa-1863) Inimica Tyrannis, Confederatio, J.A. Bolen Facsimile, Silver, MS63 NGC. Kenney-Musante JAB-8, W-14260, R.8. Only two examples were reportedly struck in silver. The obverse is a copy of the Inimica Tyrannis die, W-5635 in the Whitman Colonial Encyclopedia, and the reverse is a copy of the Small Circle Confederatio die assigned to the same W-number. This variety is scarce in copper and an extreme rarity in silver. Part XIV of the Ford sales featured two examples in copper, but none in silver. This Select Mint State piece is well-struck and unabraded with lustrous gunmetal-gray surfaces. Struck from rusted dies with several linear die flaws on the obverse. The Bolen facsimile in silver is a major rarity, yet it will likely sell for just a fraction of the price of original 18th century pieces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.HID05401242017
