Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, No Sprig above Plow VF20 NGC. M. 68-w, W-5400, R.5. 106.5 grains. A faint diagonal die bulge is evident on the reverse, up to the right across the shield on this piece. The obverse has a delicate horizontal bisecting line that looks like a crack, but is more likely an old scratch that has raised above the surfaces. This microscopically granular piece falls slightly below the Condition Census. The surfaces are smooth olive-brown with traces of tan on some devices and lettering. Ex: Lyman Low (163rd Sale, 11/1911), lot 61; later, Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,880.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
