Description:
Extremely Scarce 1786 Nova Constellatio Copper
1786 COPPER Nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays AG3 PCGS. Crosby 1-A. The 1786 Nova Constellatio is one of the major rarities among early American coppers. These extremely scarce coppers were patterned after the earlier dated Morris coins by an uncertain maker. The Garrett specimen, conservatively rated as Fine 12, is probably the finest known of as few as six examples extant and realized $6500 nearly a quarter of a century ago. This example is lightly struck, as on nearly all remaining pieces, with scattered bits of porosity and a triangular indentation on the obverse.
From the Wesley Van Olden Collection of Colonial Coinage. (PCGS# 814)
