Description 1786 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Curved Plow Beam AU55 NGC. M. 24-P, W-4965, R.2. 155.9 grains. Obverse 24 is used with five different reverse dies, and only Maris 24-P is easily located. Maris varieties 24-I, 24-M, and 24-Q are each High Rarity 7, and M. 24-R is High Rarity 5. This is the third of four appearances of reverse P, and it is the most easily located variety for that reverse. The Eric P. Newman specimen clearly belongs in the Condition Census that includes one Mint State piece, four AU examples, and one XF coin. Primarily mahogany-brown surfaces are smooth and pleasing, with a few scattered splashes of steel-brown. Traces of faded mint red are hidden among the devices and lettering. The strike shows excellent centering with full obverse and reverse borders. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7,637.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
