    1788 Connecticut Copper, AU Details
    Mailed Bust Right, Miller 2-D

    1788 CONNCT Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Right, M. 2-D, W-4405, R.1 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Die alignment: 150°. A fascinating piece for the die state aficionado, with both dies being very late. The obverse is breaking apart in at least three places, with a massive cud at the shoulder. The reverse has a substantial break at the E of ET and longer cracks at the I and B of LIB. The coin retains strong detail, though the coloration is indeed questionable. Listed on page 64 of the 2018 Guide Book.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
