Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF30 NGC. M. 4.1-K, W-4430, R.5. 114.2 grains. Struck about 10% off-center to 6:30, just enough to be considered an error as opposed to a poorly centered strike. Obverse 4.1 is paired with reverse dies B.1, B.2, and K, and reverse K appears here, and with obverse dies 7 and 8. Microscopic granularity appears on the rich blue-steel surfaces of this example, with olive highlights. The design motifs on both sides show excellent details, with prominent clash marks in the right obverse field. Although a scarce variety, several higher grade pieces are known. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $998.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
