1786 Connecticut Copper. Miller 2.1-A, W-2465. Rarity-3. Mailed Bust Right, Round Head. ET LIB INDE. VF-35 (PCGS).106.5 grains. Struck medal turn. Described by Robert exactly as he described his other 2.1-A: “About Extremely Fine, Usual shallow strike, Probably Condition Census.” Though perhaps a hair more detailed than his other example, and just as choice in its glossy, light chocolate brown color, this example has some very shallow planchet striations that roam horizontally across the upper and lower reverse, as well as through the lower left reverse field. Here is a choice example of this Red Book type that is stylistically linked to certain of the small date 1786 NJ coppers and to certain of the Machin’s Mills counterfeit halfpence.From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Henry Garrett’s Fixed Price List of 1982.
