Description 1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Baby Head XF40 NGC. RR-9, Bressett 7-F, W-2040, R.3. The RR-9 Baby Head copper is highly sought after by type and major variety collectors, and the obverse appears nowhere else in the series. Hard steel-brown patina accompanies considerable light tan on the obverse and reverse devices, with smooth surfaces that show minimal planchet defects. Far finer than usual for the variety, and likely at the low end of the Condition Census that includes one Mint State coin and one AU example, along with several pieces graded XF. This coin has 225-degree die alignment, with both sides showing full legends and a nearly complete date. Only about one quarter of all Baby Head coppers have a full date and full legends. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6,462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
