Enigmatic XF Bar Cent, W-8520

(1785) COPPER Bar Copper XF40 PCGS. Breen-1145, W-8520, R.4. Not much is known of the origin of the Bar "cent," besides its mention in the November 12, 1785 New Jersey Gazette. The newspaper article states "a new and curious kind of coppers have lately made their appearance in New York. ... These coppers are in fact similar to Continental buttons without eyes; on the one side are thirteen stripes and on the other U.S.A. as was usual on the soldiers buttons." Today, the variety is both popular and very scarce but is nonetheless collectible. The present deep brown representative features unmarked and minutely granular surfaces. All diagnostics are present: S over A in USA, a spur from end of the second bar, and a vertical die crack on the central reverse. Listed on page 74 of the 2013 Guide Book. (PCGS# 599)
