1853 Lead Quarter Obverse Die Trial

The following lead obverse quarter die trial was offered as lot 3018 in Kagin's 1983 ANA sale. It is described as being from rusted dies on an oversized partially reeded edge planchet.

The piece looks like it was copied from an 1853 dime and not from a quarter and is probably not genuine.
