Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Wide Shield MS62 Brown NGC. M. 21-N, W-4910, R.3. 165.1 grains. The Maris 21-N copper ranks among the 10 most plentiful 1786 varieties. However, only two examples are recorded in Mint State grades. In fact, there are only 30 Mint State 1786 New Jersey coppers of all varieties combined. The two finest Maris 21-N coppers are a Gem example recently found in France, and the Garrett specimen, earlier from the Mills collection. The Eric P. Newman example is probably the second finest known, ranking between the other two examples mentioned here. Distinctive mahogany surfaces exhibit minor planchet flakes on each side, with a sharp and nicely centered strike showing full borders. Minor planchet roughness is noted on the obverse, and both sides show fine die finishing lines, with faint reverse clash marks. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $12,925.00.
