||1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Struck over 1782 Irish Halfpenny VF30 NGC. RR-25, Bressett 16-U, W-2195, R.3. A second Vermont RR-25 struck over an Irish halfpenny, in this case dated 1782. On the reverse, the 82 of the halfpenny date is visible at IB of ET LIB, and the harp and much of the crown are boldly visible.
