    Rare 1785 VERMONTIS Copper VF30

    1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, VERMONTIS VF30 PCGS. RR-4, Bressett 3-C, R.4. Although Landscape Vermont coppers can be located with patience, those are usually one of the 1786 VERMONTENSIUM varieties. The 1785 VERMONTS RR-2 is also collectible. The VERMONTIS legend is limited to the very scarce RR-4 and the extremely rare (and possibly spurious) RR-5. For RR-4, the obverse die failed early on, and most examples have a bulged obverse and soft details on the plow. The present piece is a later state than usually seen, and the obverse die failure affects the landscape and RES between 11 and 3 o'clock. Metal flow into the sunken obverse die also weakens the upper reverse, which is opposite. The legends are bold where unaffected by the obverse die failure. Toned medium brown with nearly unabraded surfaces and a couple of mint-made planchet flaws on the reverse. The upper reverse is mildly granular. Struck slightly off center toward 1 o'clock, with a small mint-issued curved clip on the unstruck portion at 6:30. Listed on page 68 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 30, 3 finer (12/07).
