    1787 New Jersey Copper, AU58
    Outstanding Maris 56-n Camel Head

    1787 New Jersey Copper, Camel Head, Maris 56-n, W-5310, R.1, AU58 NGC. An exceptional Maris 56-n, with a very clear and boldly defined horse head showing a complete eye and fine details within the mane. This degree of definition within the head is almost never seen on a 56-n. The date and plow are also sharp. The only weak area of the obverse is at CAESAREA, where the strike is softer and the planchet darker and microgranular. The reverse is similar, in that most of the shield is nicely rendered with crisp details, as is E PLURIBUS. The final UNUM, however, becomes less distinct, as does the right-hand portion of the shield toward the middle. The more solidly struck portions of the planchet have toned an attractive caramel-brown, while the softer areas are darker, progressing to a walnut-brown. This piece is overstruck, but the identity of the host coin is unknown. The horse head alone makes this a very special coin: that most of the rest of it is just as nice is truly remarkable. Listed on page 74 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Jon Hanson (1971); Donald G. Partrick.
