|Service Catalog #||370|
1787 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, M. 19-g.4, W-3050, R.3, AU53 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A splendid coin, well-struck, nicely centered, and with an attractive caramel brown patina. A few nicks to the obverse effigy's face and a couple of bright spots above TOR are noted. The reverse is just lovely, with full legends and a well-rendered Liberty above a clear date. Superior to the Ford specimen, which was struck on a flawed planchet. This is the only use of either die. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
