Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF30 NGC. M. 3.2-L, W-2350, R.4. 146.6 grains. The lightly corroded, matte-like surfaces exhibit tan and rich steel-brown patina, with hints of mahogany. A small rim mark is noted at 12 o'clock on the obverse. This piece is nicely centered with complete legends and only the bottoms of the date merged into the border. This second example from the Eric P. Newman Collection has sharpness that is equivalent to the Taylor coin. An excellent opportunity. Newman's envelope identifies this as Miller 3.5-B. The differences between the two varieties are minuscule, and they are often confused. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $411.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
