Description:
Important 1787 Immunis Columbia
Eagle Reverse, W-5680, MS64 Brown
1787 PIECE Immunis Columbia Piece, Eagle Reverse MS64 Brown PCGS. Crosby Pl. VIII, 8, Breen-1137, W-5680, High R.4. Ex: Troy Wiseman Collection. Walter Breen believed this scarce issue was originally intended as a pattern for Continental Congress coinage. Later, it was struck for circulation, possibly at the Rahway Mills private mint in New Jersey. The only collectible Immune/Immunis Columbia variety; the Guide Book also lists several extremely rare issues, dated 1785 or 1786, paired with various dies such as a Nova Constellatio obverse, a Vermont obverse, and a New Jersey reverse. Rarest of all is the unique gold example of the 1785 Immune Columbia Blunt Rays NOVA CONSTELATIO, obtained by the Mint collection in 1843 from Matthew Stickney in exchange for an 1804 Class I Original silver dollar.
The present medium brown Immunis Columbia Eagle Reverse example is sharply struck and uncommonly smooth. Luster glimmers throughout the major devices. A light die crack descends from the eagle's beak, and dentils are clashed onto the reverse border near 9 o'clock. Mint-made die lines pierce the eagle's head and reach the U in UNITED. Minor die rust, also as made, is seen beneath the O in COLUMBIA. Most survivors are in well worn or corroded condition; this remarkable example ranks among the finest known. As of (11/10), NGC and PCGS have certified a combined total of three pieces as MS64 Brown, with none finer. Listed on page 53 of the 2011 Guide Book.
