Description 1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTS XF45 NGC. RR-3, Bressett 2-B, W-2010, R.5. Perhaps 50 to 60 of the RR-3 variety survive, and they are rarely found in higher grades. The Taylor Sale (Bowers and Merena, 3/1987) had an RR-3 graded AU50 that is generally considered the finest known. This piece is nearly its equal, and is almost certainly a Condition Census example. This Choice XF coin has a gorgeous two-tone appearance, combining light chestnut-brown devices with mahogany and steel-brown fields. The strike is unusually well-centered with full border details on each side. Attractive examples of this variety appear infrequently. Tony Carlotto writes: "The chances of having the luxury to be picky are very slim." Ex: B. Max Mehl (11/1954), lot 2066; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $21,150.00.
