Description 1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period XF45 NGC. R. 10-L, W-6280, R.2. This die pairing is clearly the most plentiful 1788 Massachusetts cent variety. A delightful olive-brown example with a few splashes of steel overtones, this pleasing piece exhibits trivial marks that include a few small reverse rim bruises. Traces of granularity appear on the otherwise smooth surfaces of this pleasing copper. 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 @ $4.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,292.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
