Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow VF20 NGC. M. 33-U, W-5110, R.4. 143.5 grains. The Maris 33-U is known in several distinctive die states ranging from perfect to extensively cracked. The Eric P. Newman specimen is a middle die state piece, state 3 in the New Jersey reference, with obverse cracks from the mane to the plow handles, and between N and O of NOVA. A small reverse cud is seen in the vertical shield stripes. This example falls just below the Condition Census, but probably still ranks among the top dozen examples known. Both sides exhibit pleasing golden-brown surfaces with olive devices and a few splashes of maroon patina. This piece has better eye appeal than most. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,997.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
