|Title||1785 Connecticut Copper, Bust Right, BN|
|Service Catalog #||316|
1785 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Bust Right, M. 3.4-F.2, W-2345, R.2 -- Rev Damage -- NGC Details. XF. Die alignment: 180?. A scrape to the reverse is all that keeps this otherwise well-preserved Connecticut copper from being a choice example. It is well-struck, with bold details and good coloration. An old mark to the obverse shoulder is toned and doesn't detract. This is the only use of the reverse die, with its distinctive INDE / ETLIR appearance (the R actually being a defective B). Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
