Description

Choice AU (1785) Bar Copper

(1785) COPPER Bar Copper AU55 PCGS. Breen-1145. In his Complete Encyclopedia, Breen quotes a brief commentary from the New Jersey Gazette, of November 12, 1785. The article seems to date these pieces to that year. Although not part of the quote, Breen indicates that the same article identified these pieces as products of Birmingham, England.
This lovely dark brown example has smooth surfaces with only a few ticks on either side, including a minor rim nick at 5:30 on the obverse. The usual tiny die crack connecting bars 6 and 7 on the reverse is clearly visible. Listed on pages 69 and 70 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B5J, PCGS# 599)
