|Title||1787 Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, MS, BN|
|Service Catalog #||370|
1787 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, M. 33.34-Z.11, R.5, W-3860, AU55 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. Golden-tan, problem-free surfaces and a firm, well-centered strike give this copper strong eye appeal. Both dies were used extensively, with the Z.11 reverse being married to six different obverses. This overuse can be seen here, as the obverse is cracked across from 12 to 6 o'clock with another crack developing horizontally in front of the chin. The reverse has a cud forming at the T of ET, with cracking around ET and through the final 7 of the date. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
