Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Small Head, ETLIB INDE VF35 NGC. M. 1.1-A, W-2700, R.3. 129.6 grains. The obverse die appears here and also with reverse VV in the next lot, and it reappeared as obverse 1 of 1788. The reverse die is unique to this die pair. Obverse 1.1 is known as the Small Head, and it has a distinctive appearance unlike any of the other four 1787 obverse dies with a right facing bust. The reverse has ETLIB to the left, and INDE to the right: the only such occurrence among 1787 Connecticut coppers. Shy of the Condition Census, the Eric P. Newman specimen is finer than most examples, with smooth olive-brown and golden-tan surfaces, showing deeper green patina on the reverse. Ex: New York Coin & Stamp Co. (6/1903); Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate; B.G. Johnson (sold for $20.00); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,525.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
