Choice AU Bar Copper, Breen-1145
Likely Revolutionary War Memento

(1785) COPPER Bar Copper AU55 PCGS. Breen-1145, W-8520, R.4. Not a great deal is known about the enigmatic Bar coppers, but their simplicity is appealing and their symbolism unmistakable, the 13 Colonies united into one United States of America. The design is a near-match to a Continental Army uniform button, and it would not be a great surprise to someday learn that an American or British buttonmaker produced the pieces as a memento of the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). This charming olive-gold representative is struck a couple of degrees off-center toward 2:30. The two primary diagnostic markers are present, a small spur from the end of the second bar and a threadlike die crack between two central bars. A small mark on the S provides an identifier. Listed on page 70 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 18 in 55, 22 finer (12/11).
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 977, which brought $12,075. (NGC ID# 2B5J, PCGS# 599)
