Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Horse's Head Right AU55 NGC. M. 67-v, W-5510, R.1. 140.4 grains. The reverse shows a trace of die sinking that results in a bulge at RIB of PLURIBUS. The obverse legend is punctuated with stars on this die marriage, and it is known as the Brushed Mane variety for the distinctive treatment of that feature. This example is recorded in the census as fifth finest of the variety, carrying a grade of XF+, although the authors of the New Jersey reference note it is unverified. The lovely, semi-glossy surfaces show intermingled golden-olive and steel-brown toning with minimal planchet flaws or abrasions. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
