    1787 Fugio Copper, AU55
    Newman 10-T, 1 over Horizontal 1

    1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," STATES UNITED, Pointed Rays, 1 over Horizontal 1 AU55 NGC. CAC. Newman 10-T, W-6705, R.5. 153.8 grains. This middle die state example is plated for Die State B/B in Eric P. Newman's 2008 Fugio book. The obverse is heavily clashed and the reverse has the usual die crack through ring 9. On this Choice AU example, the smooth surfaces are splendid golden-brown with maroon patina on both sides. The strike is slightly off-center toward 2 o'clock. This piece is clearly finer than the XF Ford, Kessler, Craige, and Retz coins; it may be the finest existing Newman 10-T, and ranks high among varieties from obverse 10. Two varieties combined the 1 over Horizontal 1 obverse with the STATES UNITED reverse, but the other variety, 10-OO, is still unique.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
