1788 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, M. 16.1-D, W-4595, R.3, AU55 NGC. Die alignment: 210?. Uniform golden-brown surfaces with some slight roughness through CONNEC and the usual central weakness to the obverse die. Faint remnants of planchet striations can be seen from the bust to AUCTORI. The D reverse has a significant break at the E of ET, a small crack at the I of LIB, and a long crack at the following B; it appears to be slightly earlier in state than the Miller 2-D in this sale. A very nice copper. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
