Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VF30 NGC. M. 32.2-X.1, W-3220, R.3. 157.4 grains. The obverse is paired with three X series reverse dies, X.1, X.2, and X.4. Miller's X.1 reverse is known with obverse dies 30, 32.2, and 32.7. Variety 32.2-X.1, offered here, is more plentiful than any of the other four. CONNEC and ETLIB are each close to the border on this imperfectly centered example. Smooth olive-brown surfaces are essentially problem-free, with steel and mahogany toning accents on each side. This example is finer than the Taylor and Norweb coins. Although not as sharp as the Perkins piece, it has far finer surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $440.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
