Description

1785 Bar Copper MS61 Brown

(1785) Bar Copper MS61 Brown NGC. Breen-1145, W-8520, R.4. The designs of the Bar copper resemble no other early American coinage. This anonymous issue first circulated in 1785, in New York. These pieces resemble Continental "buttons"; on the one side are thirteen stripes and on the other side is "U.S.A.", as was seen on the American Continental soldiers' buttons.
The present specimen has the requisite diagnostics of authentic pieces: including a spur from the end of the second bar, and a slender die crack at the center between the bars. There is no sign of wear, and the reddish-brown surfaces are nearly mark-free. Listed on page 69 of the 2009 Guide Book. Census: 2 in 61 Brown, 2 finer (3/09). (NGC ID# 2B5J, PCGS# 599)

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
