    1786 Vermont Copper Fine 12 Corroded. Bust Left. Ryder-10, R.4. 7.66 grams. Although this piece is technically corroded, most likely it was produced from a rough planchet, as Tony Carlotto states that as the planchet quality is poor on all Vermont coppers from 1785 and 1786, "it is at its worst on the bust left coins." This variety is not usually found much finer, as ample detail is present despite the rough surfaces. The planchet is dark tan in color, and is somewhat lighter on the devices. this lot is accompanied by a photo certificate from the Early American Coin Club that is signed by Walter Breen and Bert Cunningham, and attests to the genuine status and grade of this piece. (NGC ID# 2B59, PCGS# 551)
