Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Curved Plow Beam VF25 NGC. M. 23-P, W-4940, R.4. 149.7 grains. Two examples of this rather plentiful variety are offered in the present sale. The other is included in the Internet-only session. Although obverse 23 is known perfect, that state is known only with reverse R. The present example falls just below the Condition Census. This coin represents the usual die state with two obverse rim breaks at 11:30 and 3:30, combined with a perfect reverse die. Smooth golden-brown and steel surfaces show a few faint, well-blended scratches with other grade-consistent handling marks. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $940.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
