Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Sprig above Plow VF20 NGC. M. 34-J, W-5115, R.3. 138.9 grains. The obverse is known as the Deer Head for its resemblance to that animal. This example is an early-to-middle die state with a thin die crack from the right obverse border to the singletree. Although the surfaces are somewhat porous and marked, the overall olive and steel color is pleasing. Maris 34-J is frequently found struck over other coppers, but there are no obvious signs of undertype on this example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $558.13. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
