Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right Fine 12 NGC. M. 3-B.1, W-4410, R.6. 125.0 grains. Die alignment 270 degrees. The obverse appears with reverse dies B.1 and B.2, and the reverse also appears with obverse 4.1. Both sides exhibit hardened old blue-steel corrosion with golden-tan on the obverse devices, and olive-brown on the reverse design. Although well worn, there are no significant blemishes. Clearly not in the Condition Census, this piece is only slightly below the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin or those in the Norweb and Perkins collections. Only a couple dozen examples are known in all grades. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $734.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
