Description 1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period VF30 NGC. R.-3-A, W-6210, R.4. Ryder 3-A is a scarce variety, and the finest known to us are a few AU examples. The present piece is below the Condition Census, but is a suitable representative of the variety. The obverse has myriad lamination defects and other planchet flaws, while the reverse has a few rim bruises and a small patch of corrosion at the branch and MA. The surfaces combine chocolate-brown and golden-tan. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $1.25; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $440.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
