|Title||1785 Connecticut Copper, African Head, BN|
|Service Catalog #||319|
1785 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, African Head, M. 4.1-F.4, W-2355, R.1, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A well above-average example of this popular variety, with a firmly struck bust and fully readable legends that are only a bit soft in the peripheries (they often come much weaker). The reverse is not quite as bold, but this is normal. Liberty and most of the legends are fairly distinct, while the date is weaker. The coin's color is a pleasing medium-brown and, save for a few flecks of green on both sides, the surfaces are hard. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
