    1787 Miller 33.30-SS Connecticut Copper, XF40
    Finest-Known Series Rarity

    1787 COPPER Connecticut, Draped Bust Left, M. 33.30-SS, W-3820, High R.6, XF40 NGC. 169.6 grains. Obverse die 33.30 is known with reverse dies EE and SS. Reverse die SS is known with obverse dies 33.30 and 33.36. Past appearances of this rare die marriage have been limited to a few major collections. The coin was acquired by Donald G. Partrick in 2000 via Jon Hanson, who singled it out at the Stack's George Perkins Collection auction. Dr. Thomas Hall was an earlier owner of the coin. In our opinion, this example remains the finest known of the 33.30-SS die pair. A sharp strike accompanies attractive reddish-tan color on both sides, with olive accents at the margins. Listed on page 66 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; later, Edward Hessberg Collection (Stack's, 6/1991), lot 1483; George Perkins Collection (Stack's, 1/2000), lot 411; Jon Hanson (1/12/2000); Donald G. Partrick.
