|Service Catalog #||325|
1786 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, ETLIB INDE, M. 2.1-A, W-2465, R.3 -- Tooled -- NGC Details. XF. Die alignment: 330?. Strong detail and an even dark brown patina catch the eye, while a dramatic planchet split transverses much of the obverse. The fields have been smoothed a bit, but this remains an attractive example. While not an especially scarce die variety, the Miller 2.1-A is rare when seen as a distinct type, here defined by its transposed reverse legend. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
