1785 Connecticut Copper. Miller 3.4-F.1, W-2340. Rarity-3. Bust Right. VF-20 (PCGS). 151.2 grains. This handsome piece is richly toned in a blend of reddish-copper, golden-brown and steely-copper, the reverse a bit darker than the obverse. Well centered in strike, the obverse border is near-universally denticulated, the reverse far less so, yet with the date bold and all other peripheral elements free from the border. Scattered planchet pits are noted for the obverse, the reverse with flan flaws in and below the center, as well as at the letters ET in ETLIB. There are no handling marks of note, and both sides exhibit good gloss. While there are a fair number of nicer examples of this variety known, including the Steinberg-Martin specimen in PCGS EF-40 that recently sold in our November 2019 Baltimore Auction (lot 5064), the present coin offers solid quality and plenty of eye appeal at the PCGS-certified VF grade level. Acquired from Anthony Terranova, date not recorded. Collector envelope with attribution and provenance notes included.
