    Finest Certified ETLIR Miller 30-hh.1
    1787 Connecticut Copper, MS62 Brown, Ex: Ford

    1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, ETLIR MS62 Brown NGC. Ex: Ford Collection. M. 30-hh.1, R.2. 136.3 gn per Ford catalog description. This chocolate-brown representative shimmers with luster, and the devices have unusually bold detail. The planchet is problem-free, and the reverse appears unabraded. Good centering with nearly complete legends, the sole exception is the base of the date, which is partly off the flan. A loupe locates minor faded marks on the neck and upper left obverse field.
    NGC has certified five ETLIR Connecticuts, and the second-finest among those is an AU50. The present piece is the finest NGC-certified by six grades, and also far exceeds any at PCGS, where the highest grade is AU55. Listed on page 60 of the 2008 Guide Book.
    Ex: Tom Elder, 10/1915, lot 373; John J. Ford, Jr., Part IX (Stack's, 5/2005), lot 334.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
