Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, FNDE Fine 15 NGC. M. 32.5-aa, W-3260, R.4. 169.8 grains. Dr. Hall's white edge paint is clearly visible on this piece. This is the only 1787 appearance of the obverse, which also appears as 1788 obverse 16.7; reverse aa is also married to obverse 32.8. The obverse is nicely centered, while the reverse is slightly off-center with border dentils below and left, and with ET LIB tight. Both sides combine golden-tan and bluish steel-brown patina. Faint scratches are noted, primarily on the obverse, and they are mostly blended with the surrounding surfaces. Aside from a lovely AU in the Perkins Collection, most examples fall in the VG to VF range. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate (sold for $1.00 on May 17, 1935); B.G. Johnson (sold for $7.50); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $822.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
