1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, GEORGIVS III REX, RR-31, Bressett 24-U, W-2260, R.5 -- Obv Scratched -- NGC Details. Fine. Die alignment: 150?. A very distinct type within the Vermont family, with a Machin's Mills George III obverse (considered Vlack 22) married to a reverse die used on two other Vermont varieties as well as a Connecticut copper. In terms of strike, this example is better than most, with a typically bold obverse and a softer reverse that is still above average for the variety. The date is mostly visible, which is unusual on these. Some unfortunate scratching on George's face leads to the designation. Listed on page 75 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
