Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Straight Plow Beam VG10 NGC. M. 15-J, W-4815, R.4. 143.5 grains. Although the J-reverse varieties are known with two dates, 1786 and 1787, extensive research suggests that those coins may have also been struck in 1788 and possibly 1789. The authors of New Jersey State Coppers suggest that the 10 obverse dies of the J-family had multiple engravers, from two to four different individuals. The obverse has a minor rim bruise at 3:30. This example displays light brown devices with steel-brown fields, providing an excellent two-tone appearance that many collectors enjoy. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; apparently earlier from Hillyer Ryder. Realized $558.13. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
