    Important 1787 Excelsior Copper, W-5780, VF Details

    1787 COPPER New York Excelsior Copper, Eagle Right--Corrosion--NGC Details. VF. W-5780, High R.6. Among the important rarities in the colonial series are the New York Excelsior coppers. These New York coppers are privately issued pieces that were regulated by the state, and apparently minted by Ephraim Brasher and John Bailey. While both sides of this piece show corrosion and other surface blemishes, the overall desirability of this piece remains high. It is sharply detailed, showing all major design features and some of the intricate engraving details. Listed on page 62 of the 2011 Guide Book
