    1787 New Jersey Copper, XF40
    Attractive Maris 33-U No Sprig

    1787 New Jersey Copper, No Sprig, Maris 33-U, W-5110, R.4, XF40 NGC. 138.8 grains. A remarkably well-preserved example of a die variety that is difficult to find above Very Fine. This piece has an unusually bold strike, with better definition in the center of the reverse than either of the Garrett coins, both of which are ranked higher in the Condition Census. The fields are free of any distracting marks, and both sides are uniformly toned a pleasant toasted brown with hints of red. This coin has been underappreciated in the past. This combination sees the only use of the Maris 33 obverse. The present coin, dated 1787, was struck before any of the 1786-dated examples of Maris 15-U, a chronological quirk that is important for what it says about work practices in the New Jersey mints. Listed on page 74 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: William W. Hays Collection; Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr. (Stack's, 10/2003), lot 131; Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.
