Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore Colonial Coins and Americana Auction Nov-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 33.13-Z.6, W-3555. Rarity-5. Draped Bust Left—Double Struck—Fine-15 (PCGS). 128.6 grains. First struck a few percent off-center toward the 12 o’clock position, then struck again about 60% off-center towards 6 o’clock, before the coin was fully ejected from the coining chamber. Two complete dates are visible from each individual strike. Choice light chocolate brown surfaces are subtly granular in places but not offensively so; two large planchet furrows run vertically across the central reverse. We are astonished how well circulated many of these very visual errors coins are, as we would have thought that they would have been set aside as curiosities by whoever encountered them in circulation; but alas, we are looking at this with the eyes of a numismatist and not through the eyes of a post-Revolutionary American citizen just trying to get by! Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Purchased from Anthony Terranova, date not recorded. PCGS #370 and #685186. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
