Description 1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTENSIUM AU58 NGC. RR-6, Bressett 4-D, W-2020, R.2. This remarkable Vermont Landscape copper has the date and obverse legend complete, with an unusually strong obverse legend at the lower left. The reverse is slightly out of alignment, with a wide border at 6 o'clock, and QUARTA tight against the upper border at 12 o'clock. Improper alignment is the rule, not the exception, for the RR-6 die combination. The lovely brown surfaces combine olive and mahogany, with faint traces of original mint color on the obverse. While RR-6 is plentiful as a variety, typical pieces are in lower grades, and the specialist would do well to acquire a pleasing VF example. The Eric P. Newman coin is far finer. It clearly outshines the 1914 ANS Exhibition piece that traded hands in 2003, and is nearly equal to the MS62 Eliasberg specimen that was called the finest known. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $32,900.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
