Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow VF25 NGC. M. 42-c, W-5210, High R.5. 149.7 grains. The extended Siboni, et al., Condition Census records 10 examples of this rare variety, each grading VF, and representing about a quarter of the existing population, per the rarity rating. The Eric P. Newman coin does not appear on that list, and its exact placement can be determined only with side-by-side comparison. However, this example compares favorably with all the others. Both sides exhibit excellent detail on the intermingled steel and olive surfaces, with moderate granularity and an old, blended reverse scratch. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6,462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
