Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Straight Plow Beam VF20 NGC. M. 15-L, W-4820, R.4. 148.2 grains. Siboni, Howes, and Ish write that the obverse dies of the New Jersey coppers are easier to attribute than the reverse dies, and that "each horse seems to have its own personality." Obverse 15 has the horse leaning back to the left, with a short neck and arched nose, characteristics that Maris described in 1881. The Eric P. Newman specimen is a nicely detailed VF example with olive and tan surfaces, the obverse showing deep maroon and green patina, with microscopic roughness. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $763.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
