Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right XF40 NGC. M. 6.3-G.2, W-2410, High R.5. 135.8 grains. This exceptional coin combines golden-tan, olive-brown, and steel patina with smooth, problem-free surfaces that show only minuscule planchet defects on each side. The strike is sharp and nicely centered with a bold date and border dentils below. The obverse die was mated with reverse dies G.1 and G.2, and the G.2 reverse appears only in the present combination. This example is nearly equal to the rough AU coin in the Perkins Collection, and it is far finer than the VF Taylor coin. 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 @ $3.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
