1786 NJERSY New Jersey Copper, Wide Shield, Maris 21-N, W-4910, R.2, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A handsome copper, well centered and struck, with a dappled chestnut patina. While the obverse die is interesting, with its reared-back horse's head and awkwardly punched date (including a poorly recut 6), it is the enormous shield of the reverse die that commands attention. A fully respectable example of this notable Guide Book variety. Listed on page 71 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
