Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow AU58 NGC. M. 43-d, W-5225, R.1. 155.9 grains. An exceptional example of the plentiful Maris 43-d New Jersey copper, this piece will interest series specialists and type collectors alike. Unlisted in the current Condition Census, this Eric P. Newman coin is likely the fourth finest known example of the variety. The obverse exhibits clash marks that are unmentioned in the recent New Jersey reference, where the authors mention "apparent failure in the center of the die." This lovely example has light tan at the borders, with olive and chocolate-brown surfaces. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $3.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,115.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
