1788 NJERSY New Jersey Copper, Running Fox, Maris 75-bb, W-5520, R.4, VF30 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A mid-grade example of the Running Fox type, named after the mysterious animal seen to the left of the reverse legend. The horse's head and plow are clear and distinct, as is the date; the left margins of the obverse feature extensive cracking as seen on all examples. The fields have some scattered marks and a bit of roughness, but nothing distracting. The dark brown coloration is typical for this die variety. Listed on page 73 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
