Description 1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," STATES UNITED, Pointed Rays, Four Cinquefoils AU58 NGC. CAC. Newman 9-T, W-6770, R.6. 144.2 grains. A lovely example with intermingled golden-tan and blue-steel toning, this piece ranks among the finest known Newman 9-T Fugios, and it was missing from the Norweb, Garrett, and Craige offerings. Ford's piece graded AU, and Robert Retz had an XF example. The Kessler piece graded Fine, and the Hancock coin was VF. The Eric P. Newman example is finer than any others we have seen, and is almost certainly the finest known. A small lamination defect at the bottom of ring 8 will identify this example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7343.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
