|Service Catalog #||391|
1787 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, ETLIR, M. 37.1-cc.1, W-4100, R.4, AU50 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A pleasing Connecticut copper, with a well-centered and consistent strike and a mellow golden-tan patina. The fields are smooth except where disrupted by slight irregularities in the die. Full legends and a clear date make this a nice example of this Guide Book variety. The B at the end of LIB was poorly punched or excessively lapped, making it resemble an R. This is the only use of either die. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
