    1783 Nova Constellatio Copper, AU50
    Pointed Rays, Large US, Crosby 1-A

    1783 C NOVA Nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays, Large US, Crosby 1-A, W-1860, R.4, AU50 NGC. Die alignment: 210°. A rich, red-brown patina makes this problem-free Nova a handsome representative of the type. The typically uneven strike can be seen on the reverse, where LIBERTAS is much bolder than JUSTITIA. Mike Ringo punch-linked the Crosby 1-A Nova Constellatio to the Georgivs Triumpho token and other coppers of the day, indicating that its origins are different than other varieties in the series. Listed on page 56 of the 2018 Guide Book.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
