1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Left VF30 PCGS....
Double Struck 1786 RR-10 Vermont Copper, VF301786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Left VF30 PCGS. RR-10, Bressett 8-G, R.4. Boldly double struck with the second strike about 25% off-center. In addition to the double strike, this piece is important for its overall quality. Typical examples of RR-10 and RR-11 are horrible-looking affairs from extremely poor quality planchets. In The Copper Coins of Vermont, Tony Carlotto writes: "Metal for the bust lefts probably came from the melting of a previously made object. I use the word metal because very few of these coins resemble pure copper." Although the surfaces of this example have a few planchet fissures and some traces of reddish and greenish corrosion, the overall appearance is that of a medium brown example that was probably produced on a copper planchet. Listed on page 68 of the 2009 Guide Book. (PCGS# 551)
