1787 NJERSY New Jersey Copper, PLURIBS Reverse, Maris 61-p, W-5345, R.5, VF20 NGC. Die alignment: 150?. This is a very well-preserved example of a scarce die variety. The piece is nicely struck and centered, with a uniform coffee-brown patina that fades only a bit in the center of the reverse. The die cud behind the horse's head is distinct. While the coin bears circulation marks commensurate with the grade assigned, none of them are particularly noteworthy. This is the only use of the obverse die, and is the rarer of the two PLURIBS (reverse p) varieties. Listed on page 71 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
