    1787 Massachusetts Cent, MS61 Brown
    Ryder 2-E, Believed Second-Finest Known

    1787 CENT Massachusetts Cent, Arrows in Left Talon, MS61 Brown NGC. Ryder 2-E, W-6060, R.5. Ex: Donald G. Partrick Collection. To the best of our knowledge, the second-finest known of this elusive variety, and one of only two currently known in Mint State. This piece is from a mildly later die state than the Norweb coin, with the reverse die crack slightly more advanced. The central design elements are also a bit more softly struck, as is typical of this issue. Orange-brown and auburn hues encompass the glossy surfaces on both sides. Listed on page 71 of the 2019 Guide Book.
    Ex: Jon Hanson (4/2008); Donald Groves Partrick; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 5696, which realized $2,585.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B25, PCGS# 302)
