Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VG10 NGC. M. 16.5-n, W-3025, R.6. 151.2 grains. The obverse was used with reverse dies n and p, and the reverse was used with obverse dies 16.4, 16.5, 28, and 29.1. The round Circle H tag that accompanies this piece has a notation that the attribution was changed from 49-N(1).2 to 16.5-N(1). Close examination of the obverse of this lovely olive-brown example shows traces of the former attribution that was removed before the new attribution was inked. A wonderful memento from the formative years in American numismatics. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
