Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU58 NGC. M. 37.3-i, W-4110, R.3. 157.4 grains. Both dies are unique to the Miller 37.3-i die combination, appearing nowhere else in the Connecticut series. This lovely chocolate and olive-brown example has glossy surfaces with traces of luster. Considerable strike weakness is noted at the upper obverse and lower reverse, similar to several others we have seen. The grade is based on the surface quality as opposed to existing detail. Of those known to us, only the Taylor and Perkins coins rival this example. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $1.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,700.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
