Description 1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Running Fox before Legend XF45 NGC. M. 75-bb, W-5520, R.4. 149.7 grains. The obverse die was apparently damaged before being placed in the coining press for the first time. All known examples have various stages of die damage, including the arc-shaped die break at the lower left, and the crack through VA and the quatrefoil to the C. Both have formed retained cuds. The reverse has a narrow rim break over UNU. The smooth surfaces of this ebony and olive copper show trivial rim bruises but no other imperfections. The Condition Census extends to XF, although the exact rank of the Newman coin remains undetermined. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,225.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
