1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Baby Head, RR-9, Bressett 7-F, W-2040, R.3, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A well-centered and firmly struck example of this unusual single-variety type. The planchet quality is above average for these, with only a couple of minor voids on the obverse. While the reverse bears some striations that are more serious, they do not affect the legends and only graze the 6 of the date. The coin is a dappled golden-brown and retains some fine detail including the obverse figure's hair. A rim nick near 6 o'clock obverse and 12 o'clock reverse is the only serious flaw. This example shows a colon after ET on the reverse while some known pieces show only a period. Listed on page 74 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Eric P. Newman and Burdette G. Johnson; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
