Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF40 NGC. M. 37.13-HH, W-4185, High R.5. 138.9 grains. Obverse 37.13 makes no other appearance in the Connecticut series, while reverse HH is also known paired to obverse 37.8. Between 30 and 40 examples of this variety survive in all grades, and most of those we have seen grade Fine to VF. Although weakly defined in places, the surfaces are extraordinary. Olive-brown appears over underlying golden-tan color, with traces of mint frost showing. Even though it is less sharply detailed, this piece is visually finer than the rough XF example in the Ford Collection. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,055.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
