Description

MS62 1786 Vermont Landscape Copper
From the Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection

1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, VERMONTENSIUM MS62 Brown PCGS. Ryder-6, Bressett 4-D, R.2. The wide space between the ST in STELLA is diagnostic for this popular Landscape variety. VERMONTENSIUM represents the third and final attempt at devising an appropriate Latin translation of VERMONT. VERMONTS and VERMONTIS were used on 1785 Landscape coppers.
This is a splendidly detailed example, since only the highpoints of the hillside shows less than full definition. The medium brown and golden-brown surfaces are generally smooth, despite a minor lamination on the I in VERMONTENSIUM and some natural obverse rim irregularity. Marks are largely confined to a few faint abrasions near the plow. A significant opportunity for the early American collector, described without reservation as "The Finest Known" in its Eliasberg auction appearance. Listed on page 68 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 1 in 62, 1 finer (11/07).
Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/96), lot 63.
