Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, African Head Fine 12 NGC. M. 4.1-F.4, W-2355, R.1. 143.5 grains. The famous African Head variety has been known since the middle of the 19th century, when Montroville W. Dickeson called it the Negro Head. Although a rim nick appears at 12 o'clock on the reverse, this attractive light brown coin has excellent eye appeal. The obverse legends are typically weak, with the entire reverse also showing weak design details as usual. This example bears a modest grade, but will still be a valuable addition to an advanced cabinet. Neither obverse 4.1 nor reverse F.4 appear anywhere else in the Connecticut series. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $881.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
