1787 Fugio Copper. Pointed Rays. Newman 13-X, W-6855. Rarity-2. STATES UNITED, 4 Cinquefoils. MS-63+ RB (PCGS). CAC. Far more Red than Brown, this premium quality Choice Mint State example exhibits dominant rose-orange color to both sides. The lightest iridescent golden-brown patina is noted, but not readily evident at all viewing angles. Well centered in strike, otherwise bold detail wanes just a bit over the upper left obverse and at the rings along the lower reverse border. A few ancient carbon deposits and as made planchet drift marks are a bit more prevalent on the reverse, although both sides are free of detracting handling marks. Hard and satiny in overall appearance, in fact, there is much to recommend this coin to the discerning numismatist. With 726 examples remaining in the Bank of New York Hoard as of 1948, Newman 13-X is one of the most readily obtainable die marriages of the Fugio copper and is an ideal variety for type collecting purposes.
