Description:
Ford's M. 6.3-G.1 1785 Connecticut Copper
Bust Right, Choice XF
1785 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Bust Right XF45 NGC. M. 6.3-G.1, W-2400, R.3. In its appearance within the Ford auctions, the present chocolate-brown copper was described as "a much nicer example than almost all others seen, a match for the Perkins coin in terms of wear but without as much of that coin's porosity [sic]. 132.5 gn. ... Struck from the late state of the [reverse] die, the piece severely broken around the rim from about 9:30 to 2 o'clock, creating the impression of waves." The centers retain the moderately rough texture of the planchet prior to the strike. Listed on page 59 of the 2011 Guide Book. Population: 4 in 45, 4 finer (8/10).
Ex: Harlan Page Smith Collection (S.H. & H. Chapman, 5/1906, lot 97); John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part IX (Stack's, 5/2005), lot 227. (PCGS# 316)
