    Description

    1787 Miller 33.6-KK Connecticut Copper, MS63 Brown
    Lustrous Uncirculated Coin, Ex: Hessberg

    1787 Connecticut, Draped Bust Left, M. 33.6-KK, W-3425, R.2, MS63 Brown NGC. 155.0 grains. Obverse die 33.6 is known with reverse die KK. Reverse die KK is known with obverse die 33.6.
    When this coin last appeared publicly it in 1991 as part of the Edward Hessberg Collection, it was described as a "pleasingly heavy planchet with the smoothest surfaces. Virtually full obverse and reverse denticles, exciting strike with a wealth of detail in all devices. Light mark-free brown with traces of mint red in upper reverse." Indeed, this is a glossy, sharply detailed Condition Census example and a perfect type representative described by Robert Martin as "possibly finest" for the variety. Listed on page 66 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Edward Hessberg Collection (Stack's, 6/1991), lot 1441; Jon Hanson (6/20/1991); Donald G. Partrick.

    Miller 33.7-Z.9 is not included in the Donald G. Partrick Collection. A discussion of that variety appeared in the May 1991 issue of The Colonial Newsletter: "Discovered by Walter Breen in 1951, that coin, the only one currently known, was reported to be in the Frederick B. Taylor collection, but did not appear in the sale of that collection. No other specimen has been reported, and photographs of the discovery coin apparently do not exist."

    Miller 33.7-Z.10 is also not included in the Partrick Collection. That variety is apparently unique, with the only identified example in the ANS Collection, although the Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins rates the variety URS-2 (two known).
