Description 1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTIS VF20 NGC. RR-4, Bressett 3-C, W-2015, R.4. The Inverted Eye variety. The second spelling with VERMONTIS in the obverse legend. The three different spellings on the Landscape coppers, VERMONTS, VERMONTIS, and VERMONTENSIUM, were attempts to translate Republic of Vermont into Latin. Current rarity ratings suggest that 100 to 125 examples of this variety exist today. This attractive two-tone coin has a minor planchet clip near 9 o'clock. Both sides combine light olive devices, with rich olive and steel-brown fields. A scarce early die state, this piece lacks the obverse die bulge seen in the next lot. Increased interest from type collectors and Guide Book variety enthusiasts has resulted in infrequent availability of this variety. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
