Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow MS62 Brown NGC. M. 28-L, W-5065, R.3. 152.8 grains. The Maris 28-L Condition Census records the Newman coin as AU with the statement that it is unverified, meaning the authors had not seen the coin. Now making its first public appearance, this example's rightful place as the finest known should be obvious. One other Mint State coin is recorded, and the next six examples grade just XF. Representing Die State 2, the knobs of the plow handle are still visible although faded. Both sides of this chestnut-brown example have satin surfaces with moderate planchet roughness. Traces of mint red remain in the protected areas of the lettering. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $23,500.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
