Description 1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTS XF40 NGC. RR-2, Bressett 1-A, W-2005, R.2. All four of the RR-2 Landscape coppers in this offering from the Eric P. Newman Collection are early die state pieces, showing no evidence of the die crack that eventually forms through the 8 in 1785, up to the plow. Most students believe the RR-2 coins were the first-struck Vermont coppers, and the early die state pieces represent the earliest emissions of the series. Myriad planchet fissures are noted on this coin, although none of those diminish the attractive appearance of this sharply detailed copper. Both sides exhibit smooth olive-brown surfaces, combined with tan and maroon toning. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,993.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
