    1787 New Jersey Copper, VF30
    Maris 56-n Struck Over 1776 Machin's Mills

    1787 New Jersey Copper, Camel Head over 1776 Machin's Mills, Maris 56-n, W-5310, R.1, VF30 NGC. An exciting New Jersey overstrike, produced using a 1776-dated Machin's Mills copper as host. The Machin's variety is Vlack 6-76A, one of only two of these American issues bearing the magical date. The 1776 is boldly seen on the New Jersey obverse side, between 2 and 3 o'clock. The Camel Head overstrike is bold and mostly distinct, with the horse head, plow and date largely visible, but with the New Jersey obverse legend limited to SAREA running in an arc under the 1776 date. The undertype's NIA, from BRITANNIA, shows clearly over where the top of the horse's head should be. The reverse distinctly shows George III's profile oriented sideways under the New Jersey shield. The legend is also jumbled on this side, with UNU of UNUM visible within the king's head and III REX running to the right of and below the shield. Surfaces are dark brown and rather smooth. Listed on page 74 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Jon Hanson (11/1972); Donald G. Partrick.
