Description 1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Sprig above Plow, Struck over 1788 Connecticut Miller 14.1-L.2, Fine 15 NGC. M. 72-z, W-5420, R.5. 109.6 grains. Eric P. Newman identified the undertype variety that is rated R.6, while the New Jersey variety is R.5. Substantial undertype is visible on each side, including the 1788 date (upside down) at the top of the obverse. The reverse clearly shows AUC and CONNEC. The smooth surfaces show attractively intermingled olive, tan, and maroon colors. This piece appears finer than the NGC grade and is likely at the low end of the Condition Census. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,225.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
