1786 Connecticut Copper. Miller 5.3-N, W-2575. Rarity-2. Mailed Bust Left, Hercules Head. VF-30 (PCGS). 142.2 grains. Appealing mid grade quality for this popular <em>Guide Book</em> variety of the 1786 Connecticut copper. Hard and satiny, the surfaces are overall smooth in hand with no readily evident blemishes apart from a minor flan flaw (as made) on the reverse below the branch stem. The obverse is off center to 5 oclock with the border through the top of the letters NEC, the following colon, and the bottom right of the effigy. Reverse drawn far less to 12 oclock, the border flush with the top of the letters DE and ET, the date full and sharp. Struck from an earlier reverse die state with minimal evidence of swelling and the seated figure fully outlined, if weak at the upper right. Microscopically rough, yet to no great detriment, this is a handsome Choice VF as certified by PCGS that will please many Connecticut copper enthusiasts. From our (Stacks) Fixed Price List of November 1990, lot 119. Collector envelope with attribution and provenance notes included.
