Description 1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," STATES UNITED, Eight Pointed Star XF40 NGC. CAC. Newman 15-Y, W-6915, R.2. 142.2 grains. This is the distinctive reverse die with eight-pointed stars on the label rather than cinquefoils. The reverse was not paired with any other obverse dies, so this is a single-variety Guide Book listed Fugio. This lovely chocolate and olive-brown copper is an early die state with the constant obverse die crack from the sundial to the rim at 4 o'clock. The reverse has minor cracks in rings 6 and 8, with a vertical crack from the border to ring 7. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2937.50.
