Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right AU53 NGC. M. 6.2-F.1, W-2395, R.3. 154.3 grains. Miller's Goatee obverse, die 6.2, appears only with reverse F.1, while the reverse die also appears with obverse 3.4. Both varieties are plentiful, although seldom seen as fine as the Eric P. Newman specimen. Distinct olive-brown surfaces have accompanying steel-blue patina around the devices on this lovely AU piece. The heavy obverse die breaks and cracks are prominent on the present example. This coin is near the top of the weight-class, and less than one grain lighter than the XF Perkins example. The finer Taylor piece graded XF, and the best in the Ford Collection was a clearly inferior XF coin. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5,581.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
