Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper Fine 15 NGC. M. 17-b, W-4870, R.3. 128.1 grains. This is an early die state Maris 17-b struck before the top of the R faded to resemble a K. The early die state pieces are generally found on larger planchets than the late state examples. Many of the early die state pieces are overstruck on other coppers. There is evidence of undertype on this example, showing traces of CONN and ET LIB. Both sides show dark steel patina with a few splashes of tan on the devices. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; apparently earlier from Hillyer Ryder. Realized $587.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
