Description 1786 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, ETLIB INDE VF25 NGC. M. 1-A, W-2460, High R.4. 137.3 grains. This variety is extraordinarily difficult to grade due to the weak centers. The Eric P. Newman coin has detail that suggests an XF grade in some places, and a lower grade in others. The olive and golden-brown surfaces are generally smooth with a few small marks and planchet flaws on each side. Overall, this is an attractive piece that will make a nice addition to most collections. Obverse 1 is used solely for this die marriage, while reverse A also appears with obverse 2.1, as in the next lot. Only five obverse dies in the 1786 Connecticut series have the bust facing to the right, and the others have punctuation in the legend. Miller 1-A was rated R.6 in the 1975 EAC catalog, and it is considered High R.4 today. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,525.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
