1787 Connecticut Copper. Miller 1.2-C. Rarity-3. Mailed Bust Right, Muttonhead--Planchet Lamination--VF Details--Tooled (PCGS).
This is a predominantly dark brown example, although lighter orange-brown patina is evident over most of the higher relief elements of the design. Overall rough in texture with several prominent areas of corrosion on the reverse, a few moderate scratches before the seated figure are also noted for accuracy. The prominent lamination at the upper right obverse border, however, is as struck. Although not without problems, this piece does offer bold outline definition to the central design elements, allowing one to fully appreciate the popular Muttonhead Guide Book variety.
