Description 1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," STATES UNITED, Pointed Rays, Four Cinquefoils AU50 NGC. Newman 6-W, W-6730, R.4. 150.0 grains. The long series of Pointed Rays Fugio coppers begins with this variety. The obverse has a delicate die crack through the rays just left of the meridian sun. The upper loop of the 8 is filled, apparently as always. Despite the prominent reverse die crack through ring 9, this is an early die state before a small rim break formed at the end of that crack. This splendid chocolate-brown and blue-steel toned example has smooth and pleasing surfaces; it is equal to the Norweb piece, and finer than the Ford example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
