Description 1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," Raised Rims, Pointed Rays, Four Cinquefoils XF45 NGC. CAC. Newman 19-Z, W-6975, R.5. 144.8 grains. Coin turn with the die alignment just shy of 180 degrees. There are three varieties of Reverse Z with the Raised Rims on the reverse label. The 19-Z combination is the most plentiful of those. Although rated R.5, 19-Z is the most abundant of three varieties from this obverse die. The Choice XF Eric P. Newman coin is a pleasing mahogany-brown example with splashes of steel patina. A small obverse rim bump and a minor reverse scratch fail to diminish the eye appeal or importance of this piece. Ex: Thomas L. Elder (10/7/1927); Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
