Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow MS61 Brown NGC. M. 32-T, W-5100, R.2. 142.0 grains. This example of Maris 32-T is clearly a member of the Condition Census that includes two Mint State, two AU, and three XF+ coins. The present piece is either the second or third finest known, depending on how it compares to the other two Mint State pieces, one called Gem and the other designated Uncirculated. Rich chocolate-brown surfaces show hints of olive, with weak central obverse details as the result of early stage die sinking in that area. That die sinking weakened the central reverse strike that retains evidence of pre-production planchet marks within the shield elements. Nearly complete borders are visible on both sides of this nicely centered impression. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6,462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
