1787 COPPER Nova Eborac Copper, Seated Left, Breen-986, W-5755, R.3, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. The general consensus is that the Nova Eborac coppers were struck by John Bailey and Ephraim Brasher in New York, likely beginning in the year stated. This is a very nice circulated piece with lovely coloration, though some green is observed in the devices, mostly on the reverse. Breen notes that this variety is always unevenly struck. Listed on page 70 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
