Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow -- Double Struck -- AU50 NGC. M. 38-c, W-5190, R.3. 154.3 grains. Reverse c is described as the Seven Pales Shield due to its seven vertical stripes. That feature only appears on one other reverse die, the extremely rare reverse ii. This example is double struck with the second strike about 50% off center at 11:30. It is apparently also recorded in the Siboni, et al., Condition Census as XF+ and the second finest known, although without mention of the double strike. Maroon, steel, and olive surfaces display tan devices, with minor reverse verdigris. The off-center second strike is instructive, clearly showing the exact triangular appearance of the border detail, with a thin outer margin. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; B.G. Johnson; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $19,975.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
