    1787 Vermont Overstrike, VF30
    Ryder-12, Whitman-2110

    1787 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right, Struck over 1785 Nova Constellatio, Crosby 4-D VF30 NGC. RR-12, Bressett 11-K, W-2110, High R.3. Perhaps 200 to 250 examples of RR-12 are known, some overstruck on Nova Constellatio coppers, and others with no visible undertype. This coin has bold undertype with the large script US and some leaves visible on the obverse. In fact, sufficient undertype is visible to identify Crosby's 1785 Reverse D, which is known only with obverse 4. Carlotto identifies small planchet pieces without undertype, and large planchet pieces struck over Nova Constellatio coppers, such as the present example. This lovely coin has smooth olive-brown and tan surfaces without visible defects.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
