Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Bridle Obverse AU58 NGC. M. 18-M, W-4890, R.3. 148.2 grains. Obverse 18 is the famous Bridle obverse, with a vertical die crack that connects the horse's head and chest. Typically, the 18-M is known as the Bridle variety, although the three other Obverse 18 varieties (18-J, 18-L, and 18-N) are also known with the vertical obverse crack. The present coin from the Eric P. Newman Collection is unlisted in the Condition Census but certainly ranks among the AU examples listed, which hold the sixth through ninth positions. This satiny example has smooth olive and chestnut-brown surfaces, with bold design details that impart a nearly medallic appearance. An exceptional example of this popular variety. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,225.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
