Description 1786 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, ETLIB INDE Fine 15 NGC. M. 2.1-A, W-2465, R.3. 81.8 grains. In his 1859 American Numismatical Manual, Montroville Dickeson nicknamed this variety the Round Head, a name that is still in use today. This plentiful variety is available in a wide range of grades, and the present piece provides an opportunity for collectors to obtain the Eric P. Newman provenance at a price we expect will prove affordable compared to many others in this sale. Obverse 2.1 also appears with reverse D.3, and it is substantially rarer in that combination. Reverse A appears with obverse 1 and 2.1, and both varieties appear in this sale. This example retains all of the major detail on olive and steel-brown surfaces, with hints of mahogany on the reverse. Scattered marks are consistent with the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $587.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
