Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VF30 NGC. M. 33.14-Z.14, W-3600, R.5. 155.9 grains. Obverse die 33.14 appears here, and also with reverse Z.2, although only two are known in the other marriage. Reverse die Z.14 appears only on this rare die marriage, with perhaps 50 to 60 examples known. This example is typical of most survivors appearing in major collections, with strong details but granular surfaces. Both sides have a pleasing blend of golden-tan and steel-brown toning. Although the date is tight against the lower reverse border, the overall centering is excellent. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $381.88. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
