    1787 Nova Eborac Copper, AU55
    Large Head, W-5750

    1787 COPPER Nova Eborac Copper, Large Head, Breen-985, W-5750, R.6, AU55 NGC. CAC. At one time, this piece was considered the second finest known, although it was called the third or fourth finest known in the 1968 New Netherlands catalog, where the catalogers wrote:

    "Whatever its Condition Census rating, this piece appears to be sharper than the Crosby Plate coin, and may even be better than the Earle-Clarke specimen, lot 778 in our 48th auction, Nov. 24. 1956."

    This exceptional example exhibits lovely olive-brown surfaces with maroon patina on the reverse. The strike is a trifle off-center with the wide borders at the upper obverse and lower reverse, and with other peripheral details tight against the edge of the planchet.
    Ex: Dr. Angus C. Black (New Netherlands, 60th Sale, 12/1968), lot 418; Donald Groves Partrick.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B4C, PCGS# 484)

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
