|Title||1787 New Jersey Copper, Small Planchet, Plain Shield, MS, BN|
|Service Catalog #||506|
1787 NJERSY New Jersey Copper, No Sprig Above Plow, Maris 48-g, W-5275, R.1, XF45 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A fairly bold strike has given this piece strong detail. The uneven obverse rim is a remnant of the planchet-cutting process. This is an earlier state of the reverse die, with only slight suggestions of the substantial crack that shortly will diagonally traverse the shield. A smaller die crack has started above the M of UNUM. Listed on page 72 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
