Description 1783 COPPER Nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays, Small US MS62 Brown NGC. Crosby 2-B, W-1865, R.2. 105.4 grains. Produced in large quantities as a private token coinage, the Nova Constellatio coppers closely resembled the 1783 Robert Morris pattern coinage issue. A strong strike is nicely centered on the narrow flan, lacking border details. The surfaces of this attractive Mint State piece are smooth and glossy, without spots or surface marks. An exceptionally appealing example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
