Description 1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right Fine 15 NGC. RR-17, W-2125, R.5. An important variety that was only known to Hillyer Ryder through the description in Crosby. Ryder wrote: "Crosby gives three dies of his obv. 1 of 1788. Two of these are described in obverses 16 and 18 of this list. No specimen of the third die has been met with." Perhaps 50 examples are known today. This pleasing piece has semi-glossy emerald and chestnut surfaces with old maroon oxidation through the lettering on each side. Ex: Eric P.
