    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. 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 74 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Eric P. Newman and Burdette G. Johnson; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
