    1787 Fugio Copper, VF35
    Newman 16-H, Pointed Rays

    1787 1C Fugio Copper "Cent," UNITED STATES, Pointed Rays, Four Cinquefoils VF35 NGC. CAC. Newman 16-H, W-6920, R.5. 140.2 grains. This scarce variety is rarely seen finer than the present example, most likely a Condition Census piece. None were found in the Garrett and Roper Collections, or in the ANS Collection. Ford and Kessler had XF examples, each slightly finer than this piece, while the Norweb and Hancock coins graded VG and Fine, respectively. The reverse has a heavy vertical die crack from the border at 6:30 in this final use of that die. Microscopic roughness appears on pleasing olive and steel surfaces with a few trivial lamination defects, and minuscule post-production marks. An outstanding example for the grade.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
