    1787 Fugio Cent, MS66 Brown
    Cinquefoils, UNITED STATES
    Scarce Newman 11-B

    1787 1C Fugio Cent, UNITED STATES, 4 Cinquefoils, MS66 Brown NGC. N. 11-B, W-6785, R.4. Ex: The Old New England Collection. A magnificent Premium Gem with considerable peach-red in the recesses of the design. The high points and open fields are brown. Devoid of planchet flaws and abrasions. The strike is intricate except on the upper reverse rings. A few letters in WE ARE ONE are faint because the engraver lightly impressed those letters into the reverse die. Struck only slightly off center, toward 9 o'clock. This is the late die state with bold clash marks on both sides. According to Eric P. Newman, the authority on the Fugio coppers, the Bank of New York hoard contained 60 examples of N. 11-B. None are graded finer at either service. Listed on page 82 of the 2022 Guide Book.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2014), lot 5488.
    From The Dickson Collection.
