Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore Colonial Coins and Americana Auction Nov-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 26-AA, W-3120. Rarity-5. Draped Bust Left. VF-30 (PCGS). 147.0 grains. The Miller Sale Coin. Far nicer in the coin than in the Ford sale photo, this coin is dark steely brown and subtly microgranular on both sides, the central reverse strike a bit indistinct. Obverse a trifle off-center toward the 1 o’clock position, the reverse more ideally centered. A coin pedigreed to both the Parmelee and Miller collections, and which brought a price to match in 2005 ($1840)—how many other coins can today be traced to both of these illustrious cabinets? Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Lorin G. Parmelee Collection (New York Coin & Stamp Company, June 25, 1890, lot number not recorded); Henry C. Miller Collection (Tom Elder, May 29, 1920, lot 1909); Hillyer Ryder; F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr.; Stack’s Sale of the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part 9, May 10, 2005, lot 324. Ryder’s square ticket accompanies this lot . PCGS #370 and #685370. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
