Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU50 NGC. M. 33.19-Z.2, W-3650, R.3. 129.6 grains. Obverse 33.19 appears with reverse dies Z.1, Z.2, Z.4, and q, while reverse Z.2 is mated to obverse dies 33.4, 33.14, 33.19, 33.40, and 33.42. Only two of the eight varieties in this group are routinely available to collectors. This example is equivalent to the Ford coin, and finer than those appearing in the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale, Taylor, Norweb, and Perkins. Microscopic granularity appears on the olive-brown surfaces, with faint hairlines on the reverse. A few insignificant planchet flaws are evident, and blue-steel patina remains in some areas. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,292.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
