    1787 Immunis Columbia Copper, AU53
    W-5680, Eagle Reverse

    1787 COPPER Immunis Columbia, Eagle Reverse, AU53 PCGS. W-5680, High R.4. Plain Edge, as almost always. Crosby and Breen, among others have written that this intriguing issue was intended as a pattern for a proposed 1787 coinage, although more recent studies by Michael Hodder, published in the January 1991 issue of The Colonial Newsletter, suggest that the coppers were intended for circulation. The W-5680 variety, which is moderately plentiful and known in various circulated grades, supports the latter theory. This About Uncirculated example is well-struck with deep olive-brown patina. Neither side has significant marks or blemishes. Listed on page 57 of the 2020 Guide Book. (NGC ID# BFJL, PCGS# 841)
