    Attractive AU50 1787 'Laughing Head'
    Connecticut Copper, Miller 6.1-M

    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 2008 Guide Book.
    Ex: Frederick B. Taylor (Bowers and Merena, 3/1987), lot 2405.
    From The Liberty Collection of United States Colonial Coinage, Part Two.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
