    Choice 1786 New Jersey, XF45
    Maris 12-I No Coulter
    The Finest Known

    1786 New Jersey Copper, No Coulter, Maris 12-I, W-4795, R.5, XF45 NGC. 166.7 grains. The finest known example of this scarce No Coulter variety, with a good strike and exceptional coloration, and boasting an illustrious provenance. Choice surfaces with caramel brown patina predominate. Some central roughness on both sides is as struck: the narrow shield is deeply cut, impeding full metal flow both into it and the horse head opposite. The shield on this example shows more detail than on any other extant New Jersey copper with the Maris I reverse. The only other die marriage for this reverse is the Maris 24-I, the finest known example of which can be seen later in this very sale. An extraordinary coin. Listed on page 73 of the 2021 Guide Book.
