Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF20 NGC. RR-23, Bressett 10-O, W-2175, R.4. Current rarity estimates suggest that 125 to 150 examples of RR-23 survive in all grades, and they are frequently found with smooth and attractive brown surfaces. One such coin is the Eric P. Newman example that combines golden-tan and olive-brown, with splashes of steel-brown, and an area of reddish-orange patina on the reverse. This coin represents the usual late die state with a reverse crack behind the head. The light central strike is typical for the Vermont Bust Right coppers. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,232.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
