Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, GEORGIVS III VF20 NGC. RR-31, Bressett 24-U, W-2260, R.4. The obverse die is clearly a Machin's Mills counterfeit halfpenny die with the English GEORGIVS III REX inscription, while the reverse die appears on several Vermont varieties, including RR-39 that is a crossover piece collected by Connecticut copper specialists. Perhaps as many as 75 of these survive today, with demand from Vermont and Connecticut collectors alike. This tan and light brown example approaches XF sharpness, with faint reverse scratches that limit the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,997.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
