Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Horse's Head Left XF45 NGC. M. 50-f, W-5475, R.3. 166.7 grains. The three Head Left New Jersey coppers rank among the most distinctive varieties in the series. This lovely piece has dappled steel toning on its glossy chocolate-brown surfaces. Slight granularity is seen on both sides, and the reverse shows some old green corrosion. The strike is uneven and shows weakness at the lower left reverse. As the most plentiful of the three varieties with the head facing to the left, the Maris 50-f is an excellent candidate for an advanced colonial type set. This Condition Census shows a single Uncirculated example, an XF piece that ranks second finest, and several VF coins. This piece certainly ranks in the census with its position depending on how much each observer deducts for the imperfect surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $21,150.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
