Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF40 NGC. M. 16.2-NN.1, W-3005, High R.5. 143.5 grains. Die alignment 360 degrees. Obverse 16.2 is found with reverse dies NN.1 and NN.2, while NN.1 is unique to this marriage. The tan and olive surfaces of this example exhibit specks of light green corrosion, with a black streak on the reverse from 11 o'clock to 5 o'clock. A planchet flaw forms a slight crack in the obverse border at 11:30, and shows a prominent void at the upper reverse. The Newman copper is finer than most others we have seen, outshining the VG Taylor coin, and the VF examples in the 1975 EAC sale, Perkins, and Ford. Ex: Chapman Brothers (12/1889); William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $499.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
