Description 1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left VF30 NGC. M. 16.1-H, W-4600, R.4. 117.3 grains. This piece has considerable orange color on the pleasing light olive surfaces, stemming from cleaning long ago. The finely granular appearance suggests that this piece was cleaned with cyanide, and the intact India-ink attribution suggests the cleaning occurred before the attribution. The reverse is smooth olive and tan. Ex: William Wallace Hays; Hillyer Ryder; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $528.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
