Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore Colonial Coins and Americana Auction Nov-2019 1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 33.28-Z.11, W-3765. Rarity-5+. Draped Bust Left, Snipe Nose. EF-40 (PCGS). 123.4 grains. A full 30mm across, this coin not only lookswide but iswide! The obverse die is in about as late a die state as the Snipe Nose comes, the die fully bisected from rim to rim, the denticles very worn and failing in places, and the die clearly and acutely sunken along the inner perimeter of the denticles. Iridescent dark brown surfaces show smooth wear, very faint natural texture in the fields, and a trio of small natural planchet depressions near the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions of the rim. Comparable to the Oechsner EF coin, slightly inferior to the Perkins-SLT and 1975 Pine Tree EAC sale coins, this coin ranks among the finest survivors of the die pairing and was plucked by Robert from a Heritage sale that had a random handful of decent Colonial coins. Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Heritage’s sale of September 22, 2010, lot 3029. PCGS #370 and #686384. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
