Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right AU50 NGC. RR-19, Bressett 13-L, W-2185, R.5. There are only about 50 to 70 survivors of this scarce variety known today. Both sides of this impressive piece exhibit planchet fissures and lamination that is typical for the variety. However, the surfaces are hard and glossy with attractive olive-brown color, showing a few splashes of lighter tan on the reverse high points. Finest known is the Mint State Taylor coin. The Eric P. Newman specimen is a census-level example, and clearly finer than the Ryder-Boyd specimen that was graded Choice VF. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate (sold for $7.50 on November 2, 1932); B.G. Johnson (sold for $10.00); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $10,575.00.
