Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left VF25 NGC. M. 9-E, W-2855, High R.5. 183.6 grains. Die alignment 45 degrees. The obverse die is discussed above, while reverse E appears with obverse dies 9, 10, and 11.1. This piece is annotated 'Hall Collection' on Eric P. Newman's envelope, based on the Circle H tag. However, current research suggests that William Wallace Hays was actually the Circle H collector. Both sides show pleasing olive-brown toning with a splash of bluish-maroon right of center on the obverse. Trivial surface granularity is evident. The obverse has CONNEC tight against the border, and the reverse has a bold INDE ET with LIB nearly absent. The date is strong. This example is similar to others appearing in major sales, falling in the Fine to XF grade range. Ex: Charles Steigerwalt (9/1895); William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $705.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
