    1788 RR-23 Vermont, Memorable MS63 Brown
    Substantial Mint Red Highlights
    Amazing Condition Rarity

    1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Right MS63 Brown NGC. RR-23, Bressett 10-O, W-2175, R.4. Ex: Newcomer. 131.5 grains. It nearly goes without saying that this is the finest RR-23 copper known. This Choice Uncirculated coin certainly ranks among the finest of all Vermont coppers, regardless of variety. The surface characteristics, glossiness, and bold strike are of superior quality. Substantial remaining mint red and exquisite, tan-brown coloration suggest no Vermont copper will easily exceed it. There are virtually no marks or planchet imperfections, and the motifs are beautifully centered on both sides.

    Previous owners of this exceptional coin comprise an impressive roster of their own. This example carries a pedigree from Waldo C. Newcomer to Edgar H. Adams to John Work Garrett in the earlier years; James A. Stack, Jon Hanson, and Donald Groves Partrick were later guardians. Its new owner will join an illustrious list of numismatic elite, continuing to preserve this outstanding coin and its legacy among the finest Vermont coppers.
    Ex: Waldo C. Newcomer; Edgar H. Adams; John Work Garrett; Marvin Browder; Ed Milas, Stack's; Jon Hanson; Donald Groves Partrick.
