    1786 Connecticut Copper, AU53
    Condition Census Miller 5.5-M

    1786 COPPER Connecticut, Mailed Bust Left, M. 5.5-M, W-2595, R.3, AU53 NGC. 123.2 grains. This impressive copper has smooth, glossy, and semi-lustrous reddish chestnut-brown surfaces with a full date and legends. Both sides are problem free. The Miller 5.5-M is plentiful, but rarely found so fine. Most of the major collections of the past four decades had examples in the VF to XF grade range. This example is likely in the Condition Census for the variety. Miller's obverse 5.5 makes its single appearance in this die combination. Reverse M is also found with obverse 5.6. Listed on page 65 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Herbert Oechsner Collection (Stack's, 9/1988), lot 1046; Jon Hanson (9/9/1988); Donald G. Partrick.
