Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left AU55 NGC. M. 11-G, W-4510, R.2. 112.7 grains. A second and even finer example of the plentiful Miller 11-G marriage. This golden-chestnut example has microscopic traces of greenish verdigris in the fine details of the devices. Better centered than the previous example, with the upper obverse legend tight, and the left reverse legend also close to the flan edge. The obverse is beveled and the reverse border is indented. A small flaw is noted at the lower obverse, and the weakly defined upper reverse shows myriad planchet marks. This example falls short of the Taylor and Eliasberg coins, but it is equal to the Perkins and Ford coins, and finer than the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin, as well as the Norweb example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,112.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
