1785 Connecticut Copper. Miller 3.2-L, W-2330. Rarity-4+. Mailed Bust Right. T. HUNT Counterstamp. Brunk-not listed. VF-30 (PCGS).131.0 grains. An essentially flawless, well-centered, chocolate brown coin that became the host for the punch of a now forgotten artisan by the name of T. HUNT, which may only be part of the last name given the small size of the coin compared with the relatively large font of the letters in the rectangular, irregularly serrated edge punch. Reverse showing the late, severely spalled state of the die that is always seen in combination with obverse 3.2. The combination of great color, great surfaces and a charmingly crude counterstamp played right into the Robert’s notion of an ideal Connecticut copper!From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Fred and Ward Collections, Bowers and Merena, November 13-14, 1995, lot 3017, where it was misattributed as 3.5-B.
