Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Straight Plow Beam Fine 15 NGC. M. 17-K, W-4865, R.3. 140.4 grains. Maris 17-K is one of the difficult varieties to grade. Both sides typically show central weakness, the horse lacking its eye and the shield lacking its details. The 17-K is another variety that frequently exhibits undertype from other coppers. While no undertype is readily apparent, the oversized flan suggests this piece may have been struck over another coin. Mostly steel-brown fields frame the reddish-brown devices of this lovely two-tone copper piece. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; apparently earlier from Hillyer Ryder. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
