Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left MS61 Brown NGC M. 31.2-r.3, W-3210, R.1. 132.7 grains. Although we have already written about the plentiful nature of this variety, it is important to mention its rarity in Mint State grades. This piece is clearly finer than the flawed AU Ford specimen, and it is finer than AU examples that appeared in the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale, and in Perkins. An XF example is the finest of 11 pieces in the ANS Collection. The Eric P. Newman coin has some strike weakness, but exhibits lovely chocolate-brown surfaces with tinges of original mint red on a well-centered impression. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7,050.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
