    1787 Britannia Vermont Copper, MS63 Brown
    RR-13, None Certified Finer

    1787 COPPER Vermont Copper, BRITANNIA MS63 Brown NGC. RR-13, Bressett 17-V, W-2255, R.1. Ex: Craige. A splendid Mint State example of the RR-13 dies -- almost unheard of in this amazing condition. Medium-brown coloration shows glimpses of underlying mint red and tan shades. The right-facing bust of George III is rounded with a beaky nose, possibly the die work of James F. Atlee at Machin Mills, although debate continues about the origin of the obverse die. The reverse die was an adaptation of an imitation British halfpenny. As always, the reverse legend is only vaguely present, as is the date (with only the final 7 visible with a glass). Both sides are perfectly centered and lustrous, from an early state of the dies.
    Ex: Ted L. Craige; Q. David Bowers Collection; Jon Hanson (3/1988); Donald Groves Partrick.
