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

    1785 COPPER Immune Columbia Copper, George III Obverse, Vlack 15-85NY, W-1995, High R.6, VG10 NGC. 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 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 being off-planchet. Free of the corrosion seen on several of the 15 or so surviving examples known. Listed on page 57 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
