    AU 1787 Laughing Head Connecticut Copper

    1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Laughing Head AU50 PCGS. M. 6.1-M, R.1. An attractive and unmarked State Copper with only moderate wear on the seated effigy and on the Laughing Head's wreath. A trace of verdigris near protected areas is of little consequence. Lovely mahogany color on the obverse with olive-green reverse. Well centered on the obverse, the reverse is off center a few degrees toward 7:30, affecting only the toothlike dentils. Although this is not the finest of the variety, it is clearly better than most and almost certainly within the Condition Census. The Ford and Garrett Collection coins are finer, for example. Listed on page 59 of the 2006 Guide Book.
    Ex: Frederick B. Taylor (Bowers and Merena, 3/1987), lot 2405.
    From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage.(#358)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
