    1785 Immune Columbia, VF20
    George III Mule, W-1995

    1785 PIECE Immune Columbia Piece, George III Obverse VF20 NGC. CAC. W-1995, Low R.7. Ex: New Netherlands. 96.9 grains. The small planchet of this example is insufficient for the legends, with III REX mostly absent on the obverse, and only IMMU visible on the reverse. The date is almost entirely off the flan, with only the tops of each digit visible. The surfaces are generally smooth with trivial grade-consistent marks. Light brown devices contrast with the steel and maroon fields. Because the planchet was not perfectly round, the edges are irregular. The obverse die was too deeply engraved, so that the central device rarely shows detail, even on the finest survivors. The letters VS in GEORGIVS are low, and lost in the hair detail at the back of the head: That feature alone is diagnostic.
    Ex: From England; New Netherlands (59th Sale, 6/1967), lot 1066; Ted L. Craige; Alan Kessler; David Sonderman (4/4/1983); Donald Groves Partrick Collection (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 5649.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
