    1787 New Jersey Copper, Fine 12
    Rare 'Llama Head' Variety, Maris 40-b

    1787 New Jersey Copper, Sprig Above Plow, M. 40-b, W-5200, High R.5, Fine 12 PCGS. The rare "Llama Head" variety. Once designated as Rarity-7, and still underappreciated with very few auction appearances in certified grades higher than the present piece. The obverse is well defined for the variety, with all legends clear. The horse and plow are also bold. The reverse die previously struck Maris 38-b, and was past its prime when it coined Maris 40-b, with blurry definition on the shield, wreath, and UNUM. The golden-brown, sea-green, and steel-gray surfaces are lightly granular and relatively free of marks or flan flaws. Listed on page 74 of the 2021 Guide Book.
