||1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left XF40 NGC. M. 16.4-L.2, W-4620, High R.5. 131.2 grains. The obverse appears with reverse dies A.2 and L.2, and the reverse may also be found with obverse 14.1. The obverse is also identified as 1787 obverse 32.4. Frederick A. Canfield's white ink attribution appears in bold contrast against the rich steel-brown surfaces of this rare copper. Hard green patina appears on the reverse of this off-center strike. The bold impression is about 10% off-center at 11 o'clock. This example is equal to Perkins, and finer than Taylor, Norweb, and Ford. The AU 1975 Pine Tree-EAC coin is the only nicer one we have seen. Ex: Frederick A. Canfield; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
