Description 1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTENSIUM XF45 NGC. RR-7, Bressett 5-E, W-2025, R.3. All of the earlier Vermont Landscape coppers had medallic-turn die alignment. That was changed to coin-turn alignment for the RR-7 and RR-8 coppers, although the reason for that change remains a mystery. This tan and steel-brown example has a small patch of verdigris on the obverse. Both sides are otherwise smooth, with old, hard patina. Die sinking is evident at the lower left part of the obverse, and the coin lacks detail outside that bulge, with a similar lack of reverse detail. Between 200 and 300 Vermont RR-7 coppers survive, typically in lower grades. A survey of 58 auction appearances shows an average grade of VF30. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,350.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
