Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Coulter VG10 NGC. M. 11-H, W-4775, Low R.6. 142.0 grains. The shield is wedge-shaped, leading Dr. Maris to use the term Cuneiform. The variety is known today as the Cuneiform Shield variety. The shield was engraved deeply in the reverse die, requiring considerable strike pressure to bring out the details. Most examples have a flat or nearly flat shield with little detail. For that reason, the 11-H is extremely difficult to grade. Smooth golden-olive surfaces exhibit myriad grade-consistent handling marks with a few planchet fissures that are mostly confined to the obverse. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,997.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
