Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF45 NGC. M. 33.7-r.2, W-3440, R.1. 135.8 grains. The Dr. Hall attribution number, 33-7/R.1-2, is painted in the left obverse field of this exceptional Connecticut copper. This piece is probably from the W.W. Hays Collection, although there is no round collector tag present. Obverse 33.7 appears four times in the Connecticut series, with reverse dies Z.9, Z.10, r.2, and r.4. Only two examples are known for each of the first two reverse combinations. Reverse r.2 appears nowhere else among the Connecticut coppers. A trifle weakly defined at the centers, but well-centered, with smooth and highly attractive olive-brown surfaces. Although plentiful, this painted variety will appeal to specialists. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,175.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
