Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF40 NGC. M. 33.15-r.1, W-3605, R.2. 129.6 grains. The obverse appears only once and the reverse is also known with obverse 33.17, offered below. Several high grade examples have appeared in auctions over the last two decades, making this an excellent coin for a colonial type set. This lovely olive and light tan example shows some central design weakness as expected, with a wide border at the lower obverse. The legends and date are complete, although tight against the edge of the flan in spots. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $822.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
