Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left INDE over INDN XF Details, Environmental Damage NGC. M. 33.40-Z.1, W-3965, Low R.6. 103.4 grains. A round Circle H card accompanies this lot, although it is likely that the corroded surfaces prevented Hays from applying his famous India ink attribution. The obverse exhibits tan, amber, turquoise, and maroon, while the reverse is mostly blue-steel. The existing detail is sharper than most others that we have seen. One well-known cataloger was fond of calling such pieces "sharpness condition census." Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall (1890); William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $381.88. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
