    1788 Head Left New Jersey Copper, XF45
    Single Finest Certified, Ex: Earle

    1788 COPPER New Jersey Copper, Head Left XF45 PCGS. Ex: Earle. Maris 50-f, W-5475, R.2. The popular and desirable Head Left subtype. These pieces are rarely encountered in grades above VF20; the present piece is finer than any other we have auctioned since at least 1991, which is when our Permanent Auction Archives begin. In fact, this is the single finest PCGS-certified Head Left New Jersey. NGC has certified none in grades above VF30. Heritage has auctioned two XF40 examples, one each in our 2007 and 2009 FUN Signatures, and they sold for a combined $50,600.
    This medium brown state copper has minor incompleteness of strike on the reverse center, which shows the texture of the flan prior to coinage. Unimportant mint-made laminations are here and there, but there are no post-strike abrasions, or carbon spots, or verdigris. Struck a couple of degrees off center toward 9 o'clock, which affects only the width of the left-side dentils. An important representative of this famous design subtype. Listed on page 67 of the 2010 Guide Book. Chapman's description in the Earle Sale reads: "1788 50-f. Bust of horse and plow face left, otherwise as others. Fine. Olive color. Slight depression in planchet on edge of reverse. Rare. Plate."
    Ex: George H. Earle Collection (Henry Chapman, 6/1912), lot 2095. (NGC ID# 2B53, PCGS# 527)
