||1787 COPPER New Jersey Copper, PLURIBS Fine 12 NGC. M. 60-p, W-5340, R.4. 143.5 grains. The reverse features the distinctive PLURIBS engraving blunder on this large planchet piece. Only one reverse die has been identified with that error, and it appears here and less frequently with obverse 61. This example shows rather sharp detail for the assigned grade, although the steel-brown and olive surfaces are slightly granular, showing faint scratches on the reverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
