    1786 Vermont Copper, VF35
    RR-11 with Exceptional Planchet

    1786 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Left, RR-11, Bressett 9-H, W-2050, R.4, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 165°. A splendid example with full legends. The RR-11 is notorious for coming on terrible planchet stock plagued by striations, pits, and voids of various sorts. The present coin is a wonderful exception to this rule, with an unflawed obverse and only a couple of small voids on the surface of the reverse. Both AUCTORI and INDE are distinct, which is also unusual, and one can easily compare the two different styles of denticles used on the dies. The coloration is a bright orange-tan, and the surfaces exhibit some microgranularity. An obverse rim nick is noted at 2 o'clock. An exceptional example of a variety rarely encountered better. Listed on page 74 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: 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.
