Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF20 NGC. M. 3.2-L, W-2330, R.4. 149.7 grains. The two-tone golden-tan, olive, and steel-brown surfaces of this pleasing piece are minutely rough, with old corrosion that has now hardened into an attractive, glossy appearance. The centering of this piece is acceptable, with only the date merging into the border. The sharpness is nearly equal to that of the VF Taylor coin. Miller obverse 3.2 is known only in combination with reverse L, and examples are routinely encountered in lower circulated grades. We have handled only one finer example of this variety. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $440.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
