Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF40 NGC. M. 32.1-X.3, W-3215, R.3. 129.6 grains. Both dies are unique to this pairing. The obverse has a wedge-shaped die break in the dentils near 9 o'clock. Mahogany patina appears on the obverse with semi-glossy olive-brown on the reverse. Ebony verdigris appears on the obverse with planchet flaws on both sides. The obverse is imperfectly centered with a wide border to the left and CONNEC tight. The reverse shows better centering. This piece is finer than the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin, and it is also better than the Taylor and Norweb examples. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $411.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
