    1788 New Jersey Copper, VF25
    Maris 50-f Head Left, Ex: Norweb

    1788 New Jersey Copper, Head Left, Maris 50-f, W-5475, R.3, VF25 NGC. 158.1 grains. A well-struck example of the Head Left type, with good definition to all design elements, full legends, and a clear date. While the Maris 50-f is the most common of the three Head Left varieties, it remains difficult to find at this grade level. Both sides are microgranular, but have little in the way of circulation marks. Even some of the finer details, often lacking from these pieces, are visible, including the hilt of the sword being used as a plowshare and most of the horizontal lines in the chief of the shield. Both sides are well-centered and attractively toned a uniform golden tan. While the Maris 50 obverse is only found in this die combination, the f reverse was used with four different obverses (37, 48, 49, and 50) from two different years. Listed on page 75 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Richard Picker (private sale, 1958); Norweb Family (Bowers & Merena, 10/1987), lot 1355; Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.
