1785 Connecticut Copper. Miller 3.2-L, W-2330. Rarity-4+. Mailed Bust Right. VF-35 (PCGS).124.5 grains. Dark brown and glossy on both sides, the high points of which are a profoundly contrasting light tan hue. A torch-shaped natural planchet fissure is noted at central obverse, paired with a thinner parallel one to its right. Centered a touch toward 5 o’clock on the obverse, where the end of obverse effigy’s bust is overtaken by a minuscule planchet clip, the reverse is ideally centered and quite attractive, with only a single well-hidden planchet flaw immediately to the right of seated figure. A well pedigreed piece tracing its history to one of the granddaddies of Connecticut coppers, Henry Miller.From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Tom Elder’s Sale of the Henry C.
