Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left AU50 NGC. M. 8-O, W-2840, R.3. 151.2 grains. Die alignment 260 degrees. Dr. Hall's white edge paint is clearly visible on this lovely olive-brown example. Delicate peripheral blue-steel toning appears on the obverse, with faint bluish overtones on the reverse. Obverse 8 appears with reverse dies N, O, and a.1, the latter unique. Reverse die O is found on Miller 8-O and nowhere else in the series. This copper is comparable to the AU Perkins coin, and finer than examples appearing in the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale, the Taylor sale, and the Ford Collection. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate (sold for $2.00 on May 17, 1935); B.G. Johnson (sold for $5.00); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5,581.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
