1787 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Muttonhead Variety, M. 1.2-C, W-2720, R.3, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 210?. A very boldly struck example of this popular Guide Book variety, with a particularly distinct CONNEC (often found weak to the point of illegibility on these). The reverse is more softly struck, with some residual planchet roughness seen in the center, but still with firm devices, a clear date, and readable legends (though LIB is faint). There are a few old scratches on the obverse bust, but the surfaces are generally a smooth medium-brown. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
