Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left VF25 NGC. M. 12.1-F.1, W-4520, R.5. 128.1 grains. The obverse is paired with reverse dies E and F.1, and the reverse is found nowhere else in the series. A scarce variety, although several higher grade pieces are known, including a Mint State example in the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale. This piece has trivial obverse die bulges above and to the right. A few scattered planchet flaws are noted on the olive and golden-brown surfaces. The centering is pleasing although the upper obverse and lower reverse, including the date, are weakly defined. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $440.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
