Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Horse's Head Left VF Details, Environmental Damage NGC. M. 51-g, W-5480, Low R.6. 132.7 grains. This die marriage is the rarest of the three head left varieties, and the key to a set of that type. A minute planchet clip is noted at 5:30, although it is insufficient to classify this piece as a mint error. The surfaces are imperfect with corrosion and red oxidation, showing some pitting on each side. The sharpness appears to exceed the NGC description of Very Fine, while the surface quality pulls this piece below the census. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,880.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
