Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Horse's Head Right XF45 NGC. M. 65-u, W-5495, R.4. 145.1 grains. This may be the Brand-Johnson-Newman piece that we discussed above. An incomplete flan shows a small planchet clip at 1 o'clock on this late die state piece. We believe that this example is tied for the fourth finest known Maris 65-u copper. The surfaces are pleasing light olive-brown with trivial corrosion and traces of maroon oxidation. This piece is atypical for the variety with its pleasing lightly colored surfaces, as most survivors are dark and rough appearing. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,993.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
