Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, ETLIR XF45 NGC. M. 30-hh.1, W-3175, R.2. 163.6 grains. Obverse 30 is known with reverse dies X.1 and hh.1, and reverse hh.1 is unknown in any other combination. This die pair ranks among the most plentiful in the Connecticut series, although it was surprisingly absent from the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale. As expected, a number of higher grade examples are known. Both sides show insignificant planchet flaws on the smooth golden-tan and steel-brown surfaces, with traces of olive overtones on the reverse. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $1.25; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $881.25.
