Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Straight Plow Beam VF25 NGC. M. 17-J, W-4860, R.4. 115.7 grains. The Condition Census records three XF and six VF coins as the finest known examples. The Eric P. Newman coin is unrecorded in that list but clearly ranks favorably among the others. The majority of 17-J coppers are struck over other contemporary copper coins. However, there is no evidence of undertype on this attractive golden-brown copper. Both sides exhibit mostly trivial planchet fissures from faulty planchet stock. Ex: Thomas L. Elder (11/1920), lot 1326; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; apparently earlier from William Wallace Hays and Hillyer Ryder. Realized $2,115.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
