||1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF30 NGC. RR-24, Bressett 16-S, W-2200, R.3. The obverse die was used for varieties RR-24, 25, and 26, and the actual emission order was opposite the numbering; RR-26 was struck first, followed by RR-25, and finally RR-24. On this example, the obverse shows extensive die cracks. Although a relatively common variety, the RR-24 census includes two AU coins, an XF example, and a small group of VF coins. This piece has smooth and attractive light olive surfaces with splashes of magenta. A loupe is required to see the microscopic granularity on each side. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
