Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right AU53 NGC. M. 4.3-A.2, W-2365, R.3. 129.6 grains. An attractive example of this plentiful variety, exhibiting smooth olive-brown, chestnut, and tan surfaces. A few minor planchet rifts are present, but no other imperfections are seen. Surface roughness on the face and neck remains from the planchet. The Eric P. Newman copper is finer than the VF Taylor coin, or either of the XF Perkins or XF Ford examples. Obverse 4.3 appears with reverse A.2 as here, and rarely with reverse D. This die marriage is the only appearance of the reverse die. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5,287.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
