    1786 New Jersey Copper, AU58
    Maris 21-N Curved Plowbeam

    1786 New Jersey Copper, Curved Plowbeam, Maris 21-N, W-4910, R.3, AU58 NGC. 165.1 grains. A beautiful coin, ranked fourth in the Condition Census for this die pairing. Both sides have exceptionally smooth and hard surfaces, evenly toned a lovely chestnut brown. The Maris 21 obverse is found married to the N, O, P, and R reverses, all of which are present in this sale. On this example, it is well-centered, boldly struck, and in its earliest die state. The Wide Shield reverse is in a later state, with swelling evident at BUS and the following star. This particular variety was appreciated early on, with the obverse being illustrated in Dickeson's 1859 American Numismatical Manual and an example being added in 1796 to the collection of Sarah Sophia Banks. Listed on page 73 of the 2021 Guide Book.
