    1787 Fugio Cent, MS65 Brown
    Finest Certified Raised Rims Example

    1787 Fugio Cent, STATES UNITED, Raised Rims, MS65 Brown PCGS. N. 19-Z, W-6975, R.5. Newman's "Z" reverse was presumably one of the first Fugio dies made. It was initially paired with the Newman-1 pattern obverse die, then returned to inventory. Later, it was returned to service teamed with two nondescript obverse dies, 12 and 19. The "Z" reverse is distinctive for its raised rims on the reverse label. The letter punches, most notably the A in ARE, are larger than seen on later varieties. The "Z" reverse die varieties were absent from the Bank of New York hoard, and most survivors are well circulated. The present Gem is the single finest certified. In second place are two MS63 Brown examples, one each from NGC and PCGS. The mahogany-brown surfaces are unmarked and show only infrequent minor flan imperfections, as made. The strike is sharp at the centers. Peripheral elements exhibit occasional incompleteness. Listed on the top of page 83 of the 2022 Guide Book.
