Description 1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTIS XF40 NGC. RR-4, Bressett 3-C, W-2015, R.4. The eye is inverted, with the eyebrow below, an engraving characteristic first noted by Anthony Terranova. The reverse legend, STELLA QUARTA DECIMA, translates to 'the 14th star' and refers to Vermont's aspiration to become the 14th state. Six years passed before Vermont was admitted in 1791. The obverse of this late-state RR-4 copper has a distinct central bulge forming a raised ring within the legend. The die sinking is especially prominent above the mountain scene. Both sides of this splendid, well-centered Vermont copper have smooth surfaces with intermingled chestnut, mahogany, and olive-brown. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $11,456.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
