Description George III Proof Penny 1797, S-3777, Peck-1116 (copper, very rare), PR63 Brown NGC. Late Soho. Seems very tightly graded. A most pleasing example, sharp in all details and having rich reddish brown color. Not bronzed. This variety is easy to determine, as a few incuse dots always show between the 7 and 9 of date, and half of the sea beneath a vague ship is all that keeps her afloat! Realized $881.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
