Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left VF20 NGC. M. 11.1-E, W-2870, R.2. 128.1 grains.

This splendid olive-brown example has faint bluish overtones with smooth surfaces. The obverse is nicely centered with complete legends. The reverse also shows full legends that are tight against the left border. The flan is slightly out of round. The Newman coin is similar to several VF examples that have appeared in major collections, including Taylor, Perkins, and Ford. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $587.50.
