Description:
Small Head, Mailed Bust 1788 Connecticut Copper
Rarely Encountered M. 1-I, W-4400, VG8 Details
1788 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Small Head--Corroded--ANACS. VG8 Details. M. 1-I, W-4400, R.5. This Mailed Bust Right die pair used a reverse from a Vermont copper (Ryder-39, Bressett 25-U). The details on this piece are typically weak, created by buckled dies. Also typical is the low grade of this coin. The Ford example was a rough Fine and brought $14,950. The surfaces on this piece are also rough and there are even a couple of spots of active corrosion present. A flan crack is seen to the top of Liberty's head on the reverse. In the same area there are several slightly curved depressions that at first appear to be pinscratches, but close examination does not show that any metal has been moved, so we conclude this was some planchet anomaly present at the time of striking. This is an important and highly sought-after Connecticut copper that has its own Guide Book listing and is missing from many collections. Listed on page 60 of the 2011 Guide Book. MRB VG 8.
Purchased from Richard Picker (10/18/1964) for $50.
From The W. Philip Keller Collection of U.S. Colonials.
