Stack's Bowers Auction Spring 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2019 Henry Miller’s 1787 Miller 29.2-o 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 29.2-o, W-3165. Rarity-5. Draped Bust Left. AU-53 (PCGS). 138.6 grains. A simply beautiful Connecticut with light olive brown surfaces that retain some original luster in the fields, and all the eye appeal to be expected at this grade. Glossy and sharp with just a trace of central weakness that has left some natural planchet texture visible. Weakness is also note at the date, which is incompletely defined. One tiny retained lamination beyond INDE is trivial, and a couple of tiny voids elsewhere need to be searched out. Centered a little low on the obverse, but better on the reverse. A really lovely coin and the nicest we have seen since we last sold this coin in 2005. Far superior to the Taylor, Perkins, Collection SLT and Newman coins. The Henry Miller coin, one of the most desirable Connecticut provenances. Provenance: From the Twin Leaf Collection of Connecticut & Massachusetts Coppers. Earlier ex Henry C. Miller, Thomas Elder, May 1920:1915; Hillyer C. Ryder (tag included); F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr., Stack’s, Ford Part IX, May 2005:332. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
