    Choice AU Blunt Rays Crosby 1-B
    1785 Nova Constellatio Copper

    1785 COPPER Nova Constellatio Copper, Blunt Rays AU55 NGC. Crosby 1-B, W-1880, R.4. Crosby 1-B is the only Blunt Rays 1785 variety, and it is significantly scarcer than the usually encountered 1785 marriage, Crosby 3-B. This satiny chocolate-brown representative is smooth aside from a few dull marks southwest of the all-seeing eye. The reverse die is somewhat misaligned toward 8 o'clock, although all legends are complete. Listed on page 52 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 2 in 55, 1 finer (11/10).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2U44, PCGS# 810)
