    1786 New Jersey Copper, AU53
    Second Finest Maris 21-O

    1786 New Jersey Copper, Curved Plowbeam, Maris 21-O, W-4915, R.5, AU53 NGC. 155.5 grains. A boldly struck, walnut-brown example of this scarce variety, considered the second finest in the Condition Census. This example was struck with the earliest state of the obverse die, without the crack that forms from the rim to the final E of CAESAREA, but from the late state of the reverse, with the crack between the PL of PLURIBUS extending back to the preceding star. Both sides are well-centered, with the obverse shifted a bit toward 5 o'clock, where there is minor roughness at the rim. The horse head is nicely distinct, with an especially clear eye. The softness of strike seen at the center of the Wide Shield reverse only really seems to affect the scroll on the obverse. Listed on page 73 of the 2021 Guide Book.
