    1785 Nova Constellatio Copper, AU53
    Pointed Rays, Large Date, Crosby 5-E
    Dramatic Double Strike

    1785 Nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays, Large Date, Crosby 5-E, W-1915, High R.4--Double Struck--AU53 NGC. The Crosby 5-E variety is readily confirmed by the reverse legend in relation to the date, as well as by an obverse ray pointing to the left base of A. This is a widely double struck copper, the first strike normal, while the second strike is off-center to the northwest with minor rotation. An impressive mint error, scarce by type and seldom seen in this dramatic configuration. A prize for both colonial collectors and mint error specialists. Listed on page 56 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
