    1787 Fugio Cent, Newman 8-B, MS64+ Brown
    Pointed Rays, UNITED STATES, Cinquefoils

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, UNITED STATES, 4 Cinquefoils, MS64+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Newman 8-B, W-6740, R.3.
    Glossy walnut-brown surfaces with a hint of remaining mint red provide this Choice Uncirculated Fugio with strong eye appeal. The uneven strike often seen on these pieces is evident toward 7 o'clock on the obverse / 11 o'clock on the reverse, but there are very few post-strike marks to mention. The Newman 8-B is one of the varieties encountered in the Bank of New York hoard uncovered in 1856. Close examination reveals a number of die cracks on both sides, as well as evidence of die clashing most apparent on the reverse. A wedge-shaped break is located over the first 7 of the date, marking this as a later state. The Bowers Colonial Encyclopedia states that Uncirculated examples of this variety usually have some problems. This near-Gem piece would seem to be an exception. Listed on page 89 of the 2018 Guide Book.
