    Popular Laughing Head Connecticut Copper, AU50 PCGS

    1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Laughing Head AU50 PCGS. M. 6.2-M, R.4. There are two Laughing Head varieties of Connecticut Coppers, both of which share a common reverse that has six-pointed stars which closely resemble asterisks. While the Miller 6.1 obverse is common enough to make frequent visits to auction catalogs, the same cannot be said for the elusive M. 6.2, which has the I in AUCTORI distant from the laurel wreath. A well centered Colonial with choice chestnut-brown surfaces and pleasing details. The dies are slightly rotated. Population: 2 in 50 for both Laughing Head varieties, 4 finer (4/03). Listed on page 42 of the 2003 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B2W, PCGS# 358)
