This is an incomplete obverse die trial, in copper, of Longacre's French head design from 1859 showing just the portrait.

It is unique and is ex New Netherlands 4/51 where described as a dime trial, 58 ANA where described as a half dime trial and, more recently in Heritage 1/07 and Stacks 7/08 sales.

This piece is actually listed twice by Judd and Pollock as a half time trial in white metal P3203 in error.
