Description

Popular 'Bar' Copper or Token, MS61 Brown
Entered Circulation 1785

(1785) COPPER Bar Copper MS61 Brown NGC. Despite a sizable amount of documentation about the Bar coppers or tokens circulating in the nascent United States (particularly the New Jersey Gazette reference of November 1785, which gives these pieces their perceived date of striking), the pieces' origin remains enigmatic; despite the resemblance to Continental Army buttons, the Guide Book suggests a British origin for these pieces. This luminous MS61 example has violet overtones against deep brown surfaces and a surprisingly smooth all-around appearance for the grade. Listed on page 70 of the 2013 Guide Book. Census: 2 in 61 Brown, 2 finer (6/12).
From The Rocky Mountain Collection. (PCGS# 599)
