    1787 Miller 33.5-T.2 Connecticut Copper, MS63 Brown
    Exceptional Strike Definition

    1787 Connecticut, Draped Bust Left, M. 33.5-T.2, W-3420, R.5, MS63 Brown NGC. Liberty's pole hand fingers have been described as "ghoulish," identifying the "Skeleton Hand" variety. Miller 33.5-T.2 coppers are typically offered in VF or lower grades and occasionally in XF. A couple of AU pieces also exist, one of which was sold as part of Connecticut specialist extraordinaire Bob Martin. This MS63 Brown example is remarkable not only for grading 10 to 15 points higher than those behind it but also because of its exceptional strike definition. In addition to the obverse portrait being fully formed, so too is Liberty's head, which features clear detail on the face, forelocks, and the curls behind. Struck on a clipped planchet with olive and reddish-brown toning. Faded mint red color appears around the legends and devices. Listed on page 66 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Jon Hanson (11/7/2000); Donald G. Partrick.
