|Service Catalog #||804|
1783 C NOVA Nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays, Large US, Crosby 1-A, W-1860, R.4, AU50 NGC. Die alignment: 210?. A rich, red-brown patina makes this problem-free Nova a handsome representative of the type. The typically uneven strike can be seen on the reverse, where LIBERTAS is much bolder than JUSTITIA. Mike Ringo punch-linked the Crosby 1-A Nova Constellatio to the Georgivs Triumpho token and other coppers of the day, indicating that its origins are different than other varieties in the series. Listed on page 56 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
