Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VG8 NGC. RR-21, Bressett 10-R, W-2155, R.5. With an estimated population of 50 pieces, the RR-21 is a tough variety, although not impossibly so. A reasonable collecting goal is the acquisition of 30 out of the 39 known varieties, including the present RR-21 die marriage. Tony Carlotto estimates that 15 of the 39 varieties are known to the extent of 50 or fewer examples. A coin grading VG or Fine is a reasonable goal for this elusive die pair. The Newman specimen combines glossy light olive-tan on the devices, with mahogany and steel-brown in the fields. Minor surface disturbance appears on the reverse at 9 o'clock. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
