|Service Catalog #||397|
1788 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, M. 2-D, W-4405, R.1 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Die alignment: 150?. A fascinating piece for the die state aficionado, with both dies being very late. The obverse is breaking apart in at least three places, with a massive cud at the shoulder. The reverse has a substantial break at the E of ET and longer cracks at the I and B of LIB. The coin retains strong detail, though the coloration is indeed questionable. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
