Stack's Bowers Auction Spring 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 28-o, W-3140. Rarity-6-. Draped Bust Left. VF-20 (PCGS). 130.2 grains. Mottled mahogany and light olive brown surfaces. Smooth and glossy upon first inspection, though some microgranularity is noted under magnification and a shallow natural rough patch at the effigy’s face is due to striking weakness in this area. No major planchet flaws; just a single thin scratch is noted on the reverse. Struck slightly off center with some weakness around the left on both sides and at the centers, a common feature of the 28-o. Seemingly a nicer coin overall than those in Perkins and Ford, even though those were more sharply detailed. Provenance: From the Twin Leaf Collection of Connecticut & Massachusetts Coppers. Earlier ex Dave Sonderman, March 1977; Doug Winter; Jesse Patrick, September 1983; Eighth Annual C4 Convention sale, November 2002:117. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
