Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Coulter XF40 NGC. M. 12-I, W-4795, R.5. 145.1 grains. This is the second most plentiful No Coulter variety. For Maris 12-I Condition Census includes two XF, one XF-, one VF+, and three VF coins. The Eric P. Newman example compares favorably with the finest known example in the Partrick Collection that is plated in the mentioned reference. An 18th century plow as used in New Jersey and elsewhere in the colonies had two handles approximately waist-high for the average farmer, attached to a plowshare or cutting blade. The singletree extended forward and connected to one or more horses. A removable coulter was an additional blade in front of the plowshare that cut the soil in advance of the plowshare. This lovely olive-brown example has splashes of mahogany toning in the protected areas, with minuscule planchet fissures and handling marks. A highly attractive example for the specialist. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; apparently earlier from Dr. Thomas Hall with a small collector disc bearing his handwriting; and from Hillyer Ryder with his square envelope. Realized $22,325.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
