Description 1786 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left MS61 Brown NGC M. 5.4-G, W-2580, R.2. 154.3 grains. A second and even finer example of the Miller 5.4-G, this piece is almost certainly the finest surviving example from these dies. The centering is excellent, with the date and all legends complete. A lustrous olive and chestnut-brown example with a small area of maroon patina on the reverse, this impressive piece retains hints of faded mint red on both sides. Mint State Connecticut coppers, even from common die pairs, are extremely rare, and bidding opportunities are infrequent. 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 @ $20.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $18,800.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
