    1786 M. 2.1-A Connecticut Copper, AU50
    Small Head, ETLIB INDE

    1786 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Small Round Head Right, ETLIB INDE, M. 2.1-A, W-2465, R.3, AU50 PCGS. A scarce variety featuring the Small Round Head obverse and the ETLIB INDE reverse, this die pair is rarely encountered in such a high grade. The Eric P. Newman Collection, for example, had a M. 2.1-A that grades just Fine 15. Prior to the current offering, the finest we have handled is an XF piece that was tooled. A glossy brown example, this piece is about equal to lot 244 in the May 2005 offering of the John J. Ford collection, and is finer than those in the Perkins and Taylor collections. While bluntly struck at the centers as usual, the peripheral details are sharply defined. The surfaces are mostly free of the usual flaws that so often plague surviving examples from these dies. An exceptional opportunity for the advanced specialist. Listed on page 63 of the 2020 Guide Book. (Variety PCGS# 686823, Base PCGS# 325)
