Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Camel Head VF25 NGC. M. 58-n, W-5315, Low R.5. 112.7 grains. A die crack curves through the lower left part of the obverse, identifying the die marriage. The obverse exhibits an outline of the head and MON AUCTORI from the Vermont undertype, with periods in the legend, clearly identified as the workhorse Vermont obverse that was paired with nine different reverse dies. The 1788 date appears left of the lower shield, and all of ETLIB appears right of the shield. The undertype on this example appears to be 1788 Ryder-23. Examples are rarely encountered with a Vermont undertype. The chocolate-brown and mahogany surfaces are slightly granular, with two linear flaws on the obverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5,287.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
