Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Horse's Head Right, Double Struck, XF40 NGC. M. 65-u, W-5495, R.4. 137.3 grains. The round collector's tag that accompanies this piece indicates it was most likely acquired from a Chapman sale of October 1888. It was in that month that the brothers conducted their sale of the Ferguson Haines collection. A mere glance will reveal that this piece is double struck. The New Jersey Condition Census includes an example of this variety that is called VF+ with the Brand-Johnson-Newman provenance, although it is uncertain if that refers to this piece or the next. This piece has olive and steel-brown surfaces with hints of maroon patina, showing trivial planchet flaws. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,290.00.
