    1788 Vermont Bust Right, VF30
    Ryder-24, Whitman-2200

    1788 COPPER Vermont Copper, Mailed Bust Right VF30 NGC. RR-24, Bressett 16-S, W-2200, R.3. The obverse die was used for varieties RR-24, 25, and 26, and the actual emission order was opposite the numbering; RR-26 was struck first, followed by RR-25, and finally RR-24. On this example, the obverse shows extensive die cracks. Although a relatively common variety, the RR-24 census includes two AU coins, an XF example, and a small group of VF coins. This piece has smooth and attractive light olive surfaces with splashes of magenta. A loupe is required to see the microscopic granularity on each side.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
