Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, AUCTOPI AU50 NGC. M. 41-ii, W-4235, R.4. 138.9 grains. The obverse has the legend misspelling AUCTOPI, and the reverse has the misspelling ETIIB. Both die blunders are the result of using incorrect letter punches as opposed to broken punches. Dr. Hall's white edge paint is visible on this piece. The lovely golden-tan surfaces of this important piece exhibit a few splashes of maroon patina,on a planchet that is slightly out-of-round. This example is certainly with the Condition Census, and finer than most others we have seen. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate (sold for $10.00 on May 18, 1935); B.G. Johnson (sold for $15.00); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
