    1785 Landscape Copper, VF35
    Scarce RR-3 Variety, Blunt Rays

    1785 COPPER Vermont Copper, VERMONTS VF35 NGC. RR-3, Bressett-2-B, W-2010, R.5. Ex: Craige. Missing from several of the major Vermont collections including Norweb, Picker, and Roper, the RR-3 variety is the scarcest of the 1785 Landscape coppers. The sun's third ray points to the right of the period after RES, and the tail of the Q in QUARTA points between a star and ray. A comma-like mark after the A of DECIMA is diagnostic on most examples. Both Tony Carlotto and the Whitman reference note the prevalence of rough, odd planchets. This example is slightly out-of-round at the top and granular. Sharp details remain on the medium-brown surfaces with tan devices.
    Ex: Ted L. Craige; Q. David Bowers Collection; Jon Hanson (3/1988); Donald Groves Partrick.
