Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU58 NGC M. 16.3-N, W-4610, R.2. 114.2 grains. This is the only appearance of the obverse and reverse dies. Both sides of this near-Mint Connecticut copper show myriad marks, and we believe that nearly every one of those marks remains from the planchet prior to striking. The glossy surfaces combine golden-tan and olive-brown with maroon patina along the left obverse and reverse border. Prominent clash marks appear in the left obverse field. Although a plentiful variety, typical survivors grade VF to XF. The 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin, along with those in Taylor, Perkins, and Ford, graded XF, while the Norweb piece was called Fine 15. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
