Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, GEORGIVS III VF20 NGC. RR-31, Bressett 24-U, W-2260, R.4. Thomas Machin of Machin's Mills in New York was authorized to strike Vermont coppers, and a number of varieties are attributed to his hand. Among them are the RR-31, that is related both to the Machin's Mills series of counterfeit English halfpence and to the Connecticut series. This chestnut and dark chocolate-brown example has smooth, problem-free surfaces with exceptional eye appeal. Typical of this variety, the obverse is sharp and the reverse lacks detail. Grading is always by surface quality rather than the quantity of remaining design definition. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,259.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
