    1787 'Muttonhead' Connecticut Copper
    XF45, Miller 1.2-C
    Ex: Stearns Collection

    1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Muttonhead XF45 PCGS. CAC. M. 1.2-C, W-2720, R.3. Ex: C.H. Stearns. A middle to late die state example with partial legends. Pieces from early dies exist with full legends, and coins from late dies are known with only fragments of the legend. Apparently, the unknown and unauthorized maker enjoyed lapping dies. The scarce Muttonhead variety is distinctive both for its oversized portrait and topless Liberty. The present golden-brown representative is remarkably void of contact and shows only minor granularity. The centers retain the planchet texture, as produced. Listed on page 61 of the 2013 Guide Book.
    Ex: C.H. Stearns Collection (Mayflower, 12/1966), lot 171. (NGC ID# 2B2M, PCGS# 343)

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
