Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right Fine 12 NGC. RR-29, Bressett 22-U, W-2220, R.5. The obverse die has a dramatic appearance with a curved die crack from the rim over the head, down along the forehead and nose, to the rim at R in AUCTORI. Other cracks are noted, and the reverse appears to have sunk slightly on this late die state specimen. This lovely olive-brown example has smooth and mostly problem-free surfaces with exceptional eye appeal. The late die state lead to a weak strike, which has further led to a modest grade today. We feel that this coin is under-graded and deserves a VF assessment. Ex: Andrew Zabriskie (Henry Chapman, 6/1909), lot 54; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $12,925.00.
