Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right AU55 NGC. M. 4.4-C, W-2375, R.3. 146.6 grains. A sensational Choice AU coin with glossy chocolate-brown surfaces and exceptional eye appeal. The obverse has a minuscule rim nick at 5:30, but there are no other flaws on either side of this beauty. Perkins had a VF coin, and Taylor's was close to XF. The best example in Ford was also graded just VF. The obverse die appears with reverse dies C and D, while the reverse makes no other appearance. The lovely Eric P. Newman piece is finer than any other we have seen. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6,462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
