Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Struck over 1782 Irish Halfpenny VF30 NGC. RR-25, Bressett 16-U, W-2195, R.3. A second Vermont RR-25 struck over an Irish halfpenny, in this case dated 1782. On the reverse, the 82 of the halfpenny date is visible at IB of ET LIB, and the harp and much of the crown are boldly visible. This example has olive and steel-brown surfaces with traces of light green and maroon corrosion, mostly on the reverse. These overstrikes add immeasurably to the numismatic and historical importance of the Vermont series. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,055.00.
