Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF20 NGC. RR-20, Bressett 10-L, W-2150, R.3. The obverse die saw extensive use with nine different reverse dies dated 1787 and 1788. Both sides of this above average, mid-grade piece combine golden-tan, olive-brown, and steel patina. The strike is imperfectly centered; the date and legends are all intact with partial border details visible on both sides. This early die state example has no evidence of cracks or other die anomalies. Microscopic planchet lamination is evident on each side, and on the reverse resembles a die crack. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
