Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore Colonial Coins and Americana Auction Nov-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 32.2-X.1, W-3220. Rarity-2. Draped Bust Left. AU-50 (PCGS). 160.0 grains. 16 grains, or essentially a full gram “overweight, ” this coin’s thicker flan has allowed a fullness of strike not usually encountered on a Draped Bust Left Connecticut. Lustrous chocolate brown and showing very little actual wear, with signs of unmistakable original mint red hugging the obverse legends. Struck a bit off-center on both sides on what may be colloquially called a “crinkly” flan, the right edge showing an unevenness caused either by the planchet cutter or the planchet’s inherent unevenness, or both! A small planchet flaw in effigy’s lower drapery is fortunately out of the central focal points on this coin. Painted Die Variety “32 superscript 2 X superscript 1” in right field, “M” in right field, attributed to Frederick Canfield by Robert on his envelope. Here is a super quality coin that traces back to one of the pioneers in Connecticut coppers collection. Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Frederick Canfield Collection; W. Philip Keller Collection, Heritage, October 28, 2010, lot 3230, acquired by Keller from Al D. Hoch on November 17, 1960. PCGS #370 and #685191. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
