Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left XF45 NGC. M. 13-D, W-2890, R.2. 128.1 grains. Die alignment 225 degrees. Obverse die 13 is found only on this variety, and reverse die D also appears with obverse 9. An incomplete planchet (clip) appears at 7 o'clock on the obverse and 9 o'clock on the reverse. The dark steel-brown surfaces combine faint granularity with frosty luster. Although certified as Choice XF, we are unable to find more than a trace of wear on this distinctive piece. The Taylor, Perkins, and Ford coins each reside in the XF to AU grade range. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,057.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
