    1786 New Jersey Copper, AU58+
    Very Scarce Maris 21-P
    Narrow Shield, Curved Plow Beam

    1786 New Jersey Copper, Narrow Shield, Curved Plow Beam, M. 21-P, W-4920, R.5, AU58+ PCGS. We have auctioned seven different examples of Maris 21-P this millennium, and only one coin, graded MS63 Brown by NGC, was certified finer. Ford owned a Gem, and the Spence example is graded MS64 Brown PCGS. The present coin could well be fourth best known for this very scarce variety. An AU55 NGC example sold for $16,800 in our recent March 2021 Signature. This is a well-defined and minimally marked representative with chocolate-brown fields and steel-gray high points. The reverse has a magenta freckle on the reverse at 7:30. Listed on page 73 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Baltimore Sale (Stack's Bowers, 11/2019), lot 6055.
