    Pleasing Newman 11-X 1787 Fugio Cent, MS63 Brown
    Likely From Bank of New York Hoard

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, STATES UNITED, 4 Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays MS63 Brown NGC. Newman 11-X, W-6790, R.4. The Newman 11 obverse shows the sun's eyes as nearly horizontal pellets, the one on the left smaller and more nearly round. Prominent obverse clash marks, as seen here, are characteristic. On the X reverse, the WE touch and pierce the label, and the A is distance from RE. This Select specimen likely owes its existence to the hoard from the Bank of New York, where 132 survivors were uncovered in 1948. The strike is off-center towards 6 o'clock on the obverse, and some areas of light strike are typical, the central reverse a case in point. The lustrous surfaces show some scattered carbon as well as traces of mint red in some of the device interstices, a thoroughly attractive example. Listed on page 83 of the 2011 Guide Book. MRB MS60.
    Purchased at "Ephrata CC Show" (6/5/1971).
    From The W. Philip Keller Collection of U.S. Colonials.
