Description 1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left VG8 NGC. M. 7.1-D, W-2440, High R.4. 117.3 grains. A diagonal planchet flaw appears across the cheek, mouth, and chin of this well-worn but still pleasing copper. The flaw is similar to the obverse plated in the Whitman Colonial Encyclopedia, although they are different coins. The Miller 7.1-D is a scarce variety and the obverse appears only in this one die marriage. Reverse D was used with six different obverse dies in combinations of varying rarity, and is seen more often with obverse 7.1 than with any other obverse die. Rich steel-brown patina gathers near the peripheries with golden-tan at the centers. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $705.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
