Description 1787 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Struck over 1785 Nova Constellatio, Crosby 4-D VF30 NGC. RR-12, Bressett 11-K, W-2110, High R.3. Perhaps 200 to 250 examples of RR-12 are known, some overstruck on Nova Constellatio coppers, and others with no visible undertype. This coin has bold undertype with the large script US and some leaves visible on the obverse. In fact, sufficient undertype is visible to identify Crosby's 1785 Reverse D, which is known only with obverse 4. Carlotto identifies small planchet pieces without undertype, and large planchet pieces struck over Nova Constellatio coppers, such as the present example. This lovely coin has smooth olive-brown and tan surfaces without visible defects. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,993.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
