Ron Guth:

This unusual coin combines the obverse of a 1785 Immune Columbia Copper with the reverse of a 1783 Nova Constellatio Copper. Of the dozen or so examples that are know today, most are in Extremely Fine condition, or thereabouts, inidcating that collectors played a big part in their survival. This version has a star on the right side of the coin between the words CONSTELLATIO and NOVA.

The finest example of this type appears to be the AU+ example from the Norweb Collection.
