    1786 Connecticut Copper, VF35
    Draped Bust Left, Miller 6-K, Ex: Hall

    1786 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left, M. 6-K, W-2690, R.5, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 180°. Golden-tan coloring, mostly smooth fields, and a firm strike give the obverse strong eye appeal. The reverse is more unevenly struck, but is essentially problem-free. That this specimen belonged to early collector and author Dr. Thomas Hall makes it a special coin indeed. The 1786 Draped Bust Left type is considerably scarcer than the Mailed Bust Left of the same year. Listed on page 63 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 337)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
