    1785 Immune Columbia Copper, VG10
    George III Obverse, W-1995

    1785 COPPER Immune Columbia Copper, George III Obverse, VG10 NGC. Vlack 15-85NY, W-1995, High R.6. Die alignment: 150°. An intriguing mule combining a fairly crude George III obverse reading CEORCIVS III REX with the more refined figure of Columbia seated on a crate representing commerce, holding aloft the scales of justice, and bearing a Liberty cap on a pole. This example, while well-circulated, is largely problem-free, with a couple of old scratches noted on the reverse. Struck distinctly off-center, as frequently seen on these, with the second half of CEORCIVS and the first half of IMMUNE off the planchet. Free of the corrosion seen on several of the 15 or so surviving examples known. Listed on page 57 of the 2020 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society / Eric P. Newman Collection, Part IX (Heritage, 11/2017), lot 15020.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 835)
