1787 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Right, RR-12, Bressett 11-K, W-2110, R.3, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 195?. An attractive chocolate-brown patina and a well-struck obverse give this piece good eye appeal. Two obverse die cracks indicate that this was struck from a late state of the die. The RR-12 is nearly always encountered overstruck, generally (as here) on Nova Constellatio coppers. The reverse die is developing a cud at 12 o'clock; this is less advanced on RR-14 and more so on RR-32, which share the reverse die. A few minor rim dings are noted. Listed on page 74 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
