Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VF30 NGC. M. 33.2-Z.5, W-3340, R.1. 143.5 grains. The Dr. Thomas Hall attribution, 33-12/Z-5, is painted on the obverse of this important piece, probably by William Wallace Hays. The strike is uneven with the upper obverse and lower reverse poorly defined, although the balance is sharper. Nicely centered obverse with the legends complete and well inside the border. The reverse is imperfectly centered with ET LIB tight, and the bottom of the date off the flan. Pleasing olive and deep bluish-brown surfaces show a few flaws at the central reverse. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $763.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
