Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU50 NGC. M. 31.2-r.3, W-3210, R.1. 138.9 grains. Both dies of this plentiful variety are unique to this die marriage, appearing nowhere else in the Connecticut series. This common variety is rated URS-12 in the Whitman Colonial Encyclopedia, and it is one of only 11 die combinations that have a similar rarity rating. A common variety in a higher grade makes this an excellent type candidate. Both sides exhibit splendid golden-tan surfaces with olive-brown and delicate blue toning. Trivial planchet flaws add character to this example. The attribution number 31 appears in dark ink in the left obverse field. 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 $940.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
