|Service Catalog #||403|
1788 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left, M. 12.1-F.1, W-4520, R.5, XF40. NGC. Die alignment: 180?. The obverse bust is pleasant and well-rendered on this final-year Connecticut issue. The strike is uneven, bolder toward the top of the obverse and the bottom of the reverse, with a particularly strong date. What may appear at first to be roughness or scratches near Liberty's knees is in fact in the die. The coin has light brown coloration and only a few planchet striations or voids near the bust shoulder and Liberty's head. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
