|Title||1786 Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, BN|
|Service Catalog #||337|
1786 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, M. 6-K, W-2690, R.5, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. Golden-tan coloring, mostly smooth fields, and a firm strike give the obverse strong eye appeal. The reverse is more unevenly struck, but is essentially problem-free. That this specimen belonged to early collector and author Dr. Thomas Hall makes it a special coin indeed. The 1786 Draped Bust Left type is considerably scarcer than the Mailed Bust Left of the same year. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
