||1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, Landscape, VERMONTS Fine 12 NGC. RR-2, Bressett 1-A, W-2005, R.2. There is no evidence of an obverse die crack on this early die state example. Hillyer Ryder assigned number 2 to this Landscape variety, and most collectors believe it was the first Vermont Landscape copper produced after the Vermont legislature authorized the coinage. This pleasing olive-brown example has a few small planchet voids as struck. Traces of mahogany and steel toning add to the eye appeal. The tops of some letters and the bottom of the date are off the flan in places, although the central types are clearly visible. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
