Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Struck over 1785 Nova Constellatio 5-E XF45 NGC. M. 3-B.2, W-4415, High R.6. 117.3 grains. The obverse appears with reverse dies B.1 and B.2, and the reverse also appears with obverse dies 4.1 and 5. Smooth chocolate and olive-brown surfaces host traces of delicate blue and mahogany overtones. Irregularities are noted at the lower obverse and upper reverse of this overstrike. The only finer piece we have seen is the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin, at the time said to be the finest known. Taylor had two that were each Very Good, and the Perkins and Ford coins each graded Very Fine. The Nova Constellatio undertype is visible along the right side of the obverse and at the lower right reverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,880.00.
