    1786 Vermont Baby Head Copper, XF45
    RR-9, Strong Details, Full Date

    1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Baby Head XF45 NGC. RR-9, Bressett 7-F, W-2040, R.3. Arguably the most popular Vermont copper variety of all, the Baby Head coppers were struck at the Harmon Mint in Rupert, Vermont. The dies were prepared by Coley and Van Voorhis in New York (possibly with assistance by James F. Atlee or Abel Buell). The variety is nearly always found in lower grades with fissured and corroded planchets, and weakly struck motifs. This example is far superior to most and a prize as such. Small planchet voids and minor granularity do not detract from the sharp details of this coin. Attractive tan color with scattered orange highlights adds to the glossy appeal.
    Ex: Murray Altman (3/1976); Donald Groves Partrick.
