Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left, CONNECT, Fatal Break Fine 12 NGC. M. 15-S, W-2915, High R.5. 126.5 grains. The Hall attribution number is painted on the obverse in white ink, in this case matching the Miller number. Reverse S appears nowhere else in the series, and is always found in this late die state, called the 'Fatal Break.' This example is considerably worn, with noticeable surface roughness. However, the two-tone presentation with steel-blue fields and olive-brown devices is delightful. Although AUCTORI is tight against the border and the date is faint, the strike is nicely centered with all lettering complete. Robert Martin knew of 30 examples in 2000 and 35 today. Ex: 'Dr. Hall. Oct 95;' William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $940.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
