Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow AU55 NGC. M. 43-d, W-5225, R.1. 149.7 grains. Reverse d is a Biennial reverse d that appeared with 1786 and 1787-dated obverse dies, although the 1786 varieties (16-d and 26-d) are extremely rare. This early die state example likely ranks as the fourth or fifth finest known Maris 43-d. Myriad planchet marks and later blemishes appear on both sides of this attractive olive-brown copper, with splashes of steel and maroon. Despite the offering of four different high-grade examples in the present sale, Maris 43-d is typically found in lower grades. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,762.50.
