Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU50 NGC. M. 37.5-e, W-4125, R.3. 134.3 grains. William Wallace Hays painted the Hall attribution number, 37-7/E.1, in the left obverse field of this lovely copper. The obverse appears only in this marriage, while the reverse die is also seen with obverse 37.9. We have seen a few similar and finer examples, but no others have the antique variety paint on the obverse that enriches this offering. This olive-brown example has smooth surfaces with minor reverse planchet flaws, but few other blemishes on either side. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,175.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
