Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VF30 NGC. M. 15.1-L.1, W-4585, R.4. 125.0 grains. Both dies are found only in this die marriage. This moderately scarce variety is known in a wide range of grades from Uncirculated pieces in the Taylor and Ford collections, down to a Fine example in the 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale. Both sides of this golden-tan and steel-brown example show clash marks and die cracks. A planchet flaw appears at the right obverse border, with old surface granularity that has changed to a semi-glossy appearance. Minor verdigris appears on the reverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $440.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
