Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore Colonial Coins and Americana Auction Nov-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 9-D, W-2850. Rarity-5. Mailed Bust Left. EF-45 (PCGS). 116.9 grains. A Clark Reverse Plate Coin. Actually, little worn but displaying mint frost and the softness associated with obverse 9, a result of a worn die that was quite shallowly cut at its conception. The reverse, in contrast, is quite beefy in its strong, well-rounded strike and the mint luster is even more pronounced on this side. A bit misaligned toward the 11 o’clock position of the obverse, where there is also a pronounced curved clip that affects most of the digits 87 of the date. One of the coveted survivors of the Stepney Hoard, found in a copper kettle in Fairfield, CT circa 1951 and distributed into the numismatic community before the completeness and importance of the hoard could be studied. Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Stepney Hoard (1951); Pine Tree Auction Company’s 1975 EAC Convention Sale, February 15, 1975, lot 86. PCGS #349 and #686413.
