Stack's Bowers Auction Spring 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2019 Sharp 1787 Miller 33.23-hh.2 Ex Lyman Low, 1917 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 33.23-hh.2, W-3715. Rarity-6. Draped Bust Left, ETLIR. EF-40 (PCGS). 141.7 grains. Glossy deep steel brown with lighter, almost gray highlights that create nice contrast. Fairly consistent granularity on both sides but with little impact on the eye appeal. This is a fairly sharp example and the nicest we have seen in recent memory. One ancient scratch is noted on the reverse, as are a few scattered light planchet flaws. Centered fairly well on the obverse, if just a trifle low. The reverse is shifted notably toward 11:00 with the top of Liberty’s head off the flan. A later die state, with the reverse die sinking and distorted at Liberty’s feet. The coins owned by Norweb (later Perkins) and Frederick Taylor were about equal and both a tad nicer than this one, but this is superior to the Collection SLT coin and Newman did not have one. A fine old provenance adds to the appeal. Provenance: From the Twin Leaf Collection of Connecticut & Massachusetts Coppers. Earlier ex Lyman Low, September 1917; Hillyer C. Ryder (tag included); F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr., Stack’s, Ford Part IX, May 2005:396. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
