Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF25 NGC. RR-27, Bressett 18-W, W-2205, R.2. Vermont varieties RR-13, RR-16, and RR-27 are the three most plentiful varieties in the entire series. However, the typical RR-27 is granular or porous, with smooth planchet pieces rarely encountered. This coin from the Eric P. Newman Collection has smooth olive-brown surfaces with microscopic roughness that fails to diminish its eye appeal. This early die state example has a delicate obverse crack from the mail to the star at 4 o'clock. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $998.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
