1787 Fugio Copper, 8 Pointed Stars, Newman 15-Y, PCGS AU55, ex Norweb.

Ex Norweb, Bowers & Merena 11/14/1988, lot 3544 - Bowers & Merena 3/2003, lot 269.

One of the sharpest and technically highest grade examples of the intriguing 8 Pointed Stars variety that we’ve encountered as well as one of the boldest impressions of both stars on the reverse label, the bottom one of which often comes weak. There are no true mint state examples known of the variety. This one shows only the slightest trace of wear and has a thick, high grade gloss on uniform deep brown surfaces. Fairly early die state showing only the beginning of the reverse die cracks. Planchet flaws at FUGIO and the corresponding area of the reverse keep this from costing more than twice as much and it remains an impressive example, free from post-strike issues, and probably worthy of a spot in the condition census. Tied for finest graded at PCGS.
