1787 New Jersey Copper. Maris 73-aa, W-5430. Rarity-4. Plaited Mane, Ghost NOVA. Fine Details--Environmental Damage (PCGS).69.5 grains. Struck on an extraordinarily thin and light planchet, likely overstruck on another coin like most or all of the variety, perhaps a non-regal halfpenny of some sort given the light weight although no clear undertype is visible. Dark surfaces are quite rough from ground burial but free of any serious marks. The motifs are almost fully outlined while the date and legends are mostly indistinct. An interesting specimen of this very scarce and popular variety.PCGS# 763355.From the Sydney F. Martin Collection. Earlier from eBay, February 2005.
