Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Curved Plow Beam AU55 NGC. M. 21-P, W-4920, R.5. 146.6 grains. The P reverse was combined with four obverse dies (21, 22, 23, and 24) and appears here in its latest die state. The striking order was 22-P, 23-P, 24-P, and 21-P. Advanced die deterioration is noted at 7 o'clock on the reverse border. Approximately 60 to 70 examples of the 21-P are known in all grades, including two Mint State examples. The Eric P. Newman coin ranks in the Condition Census just below those two pieces. This example features smooth surfaces with intermingled olive, mahogany, and steel color. A few trivial flaws and microscopic granularity are noted. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,700.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
