1787 NJERSY New Jersey Copper, Sprig Above Plow, Maris 63-q, W-5365, R.1, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 165?. A really choice example and a perfect selection for the collector seeking a mid-level New Jersey copper for a type collection. Smooth surfaces and a decent strike give this piece good eye appeal. From a later state of the reverse die, with cracks through PL and the star below. The marks in the shield are from planchet roughness that wasn't smoothed out in striking. Listed on page 72 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
