Description 1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," STATES UNITED, Pointed Rays, Four Cinquefoils MS64 Brown NGC. Newman 13-X, W-6855, R.2. 155.0 grains. Nearly half of the 1,641 Fugio coppers from the Bank of New York Hoard were examples of Newman 13-X; the hoard included 726 examples. Only one die state is recorded for the variety, perhaps surprising as the 13-X is the most plentiful Fugio die marriage, and one of just two Fugio varieties rated R.2. As such, this is an excellent type candidate, and its availability in Mint State grades ensures anyone can acquire an attractive example such as that offered here. Both sides have full cartwheel luster with chocolate-brown surfaces and myriad deeper toning spots. Ex: Thomas L. Elder (1/1919), lot 454; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4112.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
