Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right XF40 NGC. M. 3.3-F.3, W-2335, R.4. 162.0 grains. A trivial obverse die bulge creates design weakness behind the neck on this lovely coin. Smooth and glossy golden-tan and olive-brown surfaces exhibit hard maroon patina in some areas on both sides. The centering is exceptional with full legends and a complete date. This example is far finer than the defective Fine Taylor coin, and slightly better than the Choice Very Fine Perkins specimen. Obverse 3.3 appears only with reverse F.3, while the reverse also appears in the rare 3.1-F.3 marriage. Ex: Richard Picker; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,410.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
