Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, AUCTOBI VF25 NGC. M. 39.2-ee, W-4220, Low R.5. 120.4 grains. This is the only appearance of both obverse and reverse dies. Although a borderline R.5 variety, which may be adjusted to High R.4, high grade examples are essentially non-existent. The Pine Tree-EAC, Taylor, Norweb, Perkins, and Ford Collections each had an example grading no better than VF. This piece shows an uneven strike with the lower obverse and left side of the reverse sharper than elsewhere. Light olive surfaces are visible beneath intermingled blue-steel and maroon patina on this important Connecticut copper. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $587.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
