    1787 Miller 4-L Connecticut Copper, AU55
    Early Die State

    1787 Connecticut, Horned Bust, M. 4-L, W-2810, R.1, AU55 NGC. Obverse die 4 is known only with reverse die L. Reverse die L is found with obverse dies 1.3 and 4. The 1787 Connecticut Miller 4-L, known as the Horned Bust variety, ranks among the most plentiful varieties in the series, and also among the most popular. Several die states are known, and collectors typically seek out examples of the early, middle, and late die states. Donald G. Partrick acquired five different examples of the variety, each in a different die state. This Choice AU example illustrates his earliest die state with only a trace of the horn visible in the field below the obverse effigy's bust. An earlier state with no trace of the horn exists. This lovely piece has splashes of walnut toning on the high points with light olive and tan in the fields. Listed on page 65 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Jon Hanson (7/28/2003); Donald G. Partrick.
