    1786 Vermont Copper, VF25
    The Distinctive Baby Head Variety, RR-9

    1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Baby Head, RR-9, Bressett 7-F, W-2040, R.3, VF25 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green, Eric P. Newman Collection. Die alignment: 180°. A well-centered and firmly struck example of this unusual single-variety type. The planchet quality is above average for these, with only a couple of minor voids on the obverse. While the reverse bears some striations that are more serious, they do not affect the legends and only graze the 6 of the date. The coin is a dappled golden-brown and retains some fine detail including the obverse figure's hair. A rim nick near 6 o'clock obverse and 12 o'clock reverse is the only serious flaw. This example shows a colon after ET on the reverse while some known pieces show only a period. Listed on page 54 of the 2022 Guide Book.
    Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Eric P. Newman and Burdette G. Johnson; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; Newman Collection, Part IX (Heritage, 11/2017), lot 15050
