1786 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Large Head Right, Miller 3-D.1, W-2510, High R.5, VF30 NGC. Die alignment: 150?. The obverse is well-centered, with detailed hair and bust, and distinct legends. The reverse is a bit off-center toward 8 o'clock, but maintains a clear date and lettering. The olive-brown toning is fairly uniform over slightly granular surfaces. There is a pre-striking planchet clip at 7 o'clock. A well-preserved piece, boasting more detail than either the Ford or Taylor/Perkins example, both of which also had a planchet clip. White lettering on the edge confirms the Hall provenance. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall (1909); Virgil M. Brand; Brand Estate; Burdette G. Johnson (1937); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
