    Splendid 1785 VERMONTS Copper, RR-2, AU55

    1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, VERMONTS AU55 PCGS. RR-2, Bressett 1-A, R.2. A charming chocolate-brown piece with occasional hints of mahogany patina. Well struck on the landscape and all-seeing eye, and most of the rays are sharp. The strike is soft on the date and at 10 o'clock, because the planchet was thinner near those areas. Where not fully brought up, the surfaces are microgranular, likely as present on the planchet before the strike. A few unimportant planchet flaws are detected at the borders. Vermont Republic coppers were first struck in 1785. A landscape type was used through 1786, then designs similar to the contemporary Connecticut coppers were adopted. As of (1/09), the present piece is the only AU55 certified by PCGS, with none finer. Listed on page 68 of the 2009 Guide Book.
