Stack's Bowers Auction Spring 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 33.5-T.2, W-3420. Rarity-5. Draped Bust Left, Skeleton Hand. EF-40 (PCGS). 124.6 grains. Attractive light olive brown on the obverse with some gentle striations noted in the patina under close examination. The reverse is deeper olive with a steely green tint. Both sides are glossy with an initially smooth appearance, though a trace of microgranularity is detected with magnification. A couple of trivial natural flaws are noted in the effigy, but otherwise the flan seems to have been of very nice quality. Well centered and nicely struck with few marks beyond a couple of tiny rim nicks. A prominently visible skeleton hand adds to the appeal of this piece, which is as nice as any we have seen in recent years. Nicer overall than Taylor, and certainly better than the Collection SLT coin, though the Perkins piece may have been a little sharper. Provenance: From the Twin Leaf Collection of Connecticut & Massachusetts Coppers. Earlier ex John J. Ford, Jr., Stack’s, Ford Part IX, May 2005:361. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
