1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 32.4-F, W-3240. Rarity-6. Draped Bust Left. Very Fine, Porous. 133.6 grains. Both sides exhibit a blend of dominant olive-copper and sandy-brown patina, the central reverse also with swirls of warmer olive-gray. The reverse is rotated approximately 90 degrees clockwise from normal coin alignment, the impression on that side drawn to the left border with much of the word INDE indistinct. The date is clear, however, and the seated figure is well outlined and suitably bold. Obverse impression drawn to 5 oclock, lower right off the flan, CONNEC faint, AUCTORI generally sharper and the effigy well outlined in most areas. An overall rough texture and areas of extensive pitting explain our qualifier, accuracy also compelling us to mention concentrations of wispy scratches over the lower right obverse, also in and around the central reverse. This rare variety was not represented in Norweb, Oechsner, Hessberg, Ford or Newman and, while the present example is far from perfect, it represents a fleeting bidding opportunity for the advanced Connecticut copper enthusiast. Acquired from Mike Ringo, February 1991. Collector envelope with attribution and provenance notes included.
