Gilt Copper Piece, Judd-1661
About a dozen examples of Judd-1661 are known in copper and many (including the present coin) have been gilt. This piece displays sharply detailed design elements with the slightest trace of high-point wear. Like most gilt coins, the luster is flat and mattelike, rather than flashy. No large or distracting abrasions are present, but the surfaces show slight evidence of whizzing.
