    1787 New Jersey Copper, AU50
    Maris 6-D Double Coulter, Ex Spiro

    1787 New Jersey Copper, No Sprig, Maris 6-D, W-5050, R.2, AU50 NGC. 138.8 grains. A fascinating example of this notable variety, struck from late states of both dies. The obverse retains the attractive horse head that makes the Maris 6 such a popular die, but this example has significant sinking at the date, with the 87 barely being legible, and rust spots are visible in the area around the plow handles. The line leading to the singletree is very thin, and the singletree is bold and parallel to the coulter, leading some early collectors to deem this the "Double Coulter" variety. This combination is the only use of the D reverse, which on this piece shows extensive die rust within the shield and a major break, with cud, below and to the left of the shield. Listed on page 74 of the 2021 Guide Book.
