    1788 RR-25 Vermont, XF45
    Exemplary Quality for the Variety

    1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Bust Right XF45 NGC. CAC. RR-25, Bressett 16-U, W-2195, R.3. Ex: Craige. The issue is often overstruck on English or Irish halfpennies, but this coin was minted on a virgin flan. The copper quality is unusually high for the RR-25 variety. The obverse diagnostics are present but unpretentious on this piece -- sinking of the die above the head is less obvious, and the die anomaly at the upper breastplate is smaller and less overt than other examples. The engraving on George III appears more skilled, with sharp details on the hair and facial features. Some central weakness on Liberty is offset by a bold branch hand and strong peripheral elements.

    Production of the variety was split between the Rupert Mint in Vermont and Machin's Mills in Newburgh, NY. This coin was likely one of the final Rupert Mint issues before all production was moved to New York. Exceptional surfaces are boldly struck, glossy, and unmarked from circulation. The coin is almost ideally centered on both sides, a deep-rich brown with remaining luster.
    Ex: Ted L. Craige; Q. David Bowers Collection; Jon Hanson (3/1988); Donald Groves Partrick.
