Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU55 NGC. M. 47-a.3, W-4310, High R.6. 145.1 grains. The obverse and reverse dies are both unique to Miller 47-a.3. There are probably only 15 or 16 examples of the Miller 47-a.3 known in all grades. This is the third example we have handled, and it is far finer than either of the others, both from the W. Philip Keller Collection. Others that we know of include the Fine to VF Pine Tree-EAC coin, the XF Garrett piece, Fine examples in Taylor and Ford, and the VF Perkins specimen. Pleasing semi-glossy golden-brown surfaces show rich chocolate-brown overtones. Nicely centered and problem-free. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,225.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
