New York--New York. 1837 Merchants Exchange. HT-292, Low-96, W-NY-760-15a. Rarity-6. Copper. Plain Edge. 28.1 mm. Extremely Fine, Tooled. Chestnut brown surfaces with deeper toning in the more protected areas and traces of original luster on the reverse. Concentrations of pin scratches in the upper obverse field and within the wreath on the reverse explain our qualifier. Long recognized as an elusive variety, HT-292 is easily distinguished from its (far) more common HT-291 counterpart by the number and arrangement of berries in the wreath on the reverse. For HT-291 there are six berries in, four outside the wreath. For HT-292, the number and arrangement is five in, three out. Bowers (2015) estimates that only 20 or so are known, most of which grade VF or EF. From our (Coin Galleries) sale of December 2009, lot 1517. Lot tag and collector envelope with attribution notation included.
