Description 1786 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left AU58 NGC M. 5.4-G, W-2580, R.2. 151.2 grains. While plentiful overall, the Eric P. Newman example of Miller 5.4-G is finer than most others we have seen. The 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin was described as VF to XF, and the Taylor Collection coin was graded VF20. That coin reappeared in the Perkins sale with the grade of Choice Fine. The Newman coin is clearly finer than the Choice XF Ford piece. Both sides have old orange color, blended with attractive bluish-brown patina. The surfaces are smooth and problem free, with excellent eye appeal. This example ranks high in the Condition Census, and it is likely the third or fourth finest survivor from these dies. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $9,400.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
