1787 Fugio Copper, Cross After Date, UNITED STATES, Newman 1-B, R.4, PCGS AU55.

Ex Ted Craige, Stack’s Bowers 1/22/2013, lot 11558.

Exceptionally nice quality for a variety that’s unknown in mint state and especially tricky to find without strike or surfaces issues. This piece is well struck and nicely centered overall, the obverse pretty much perfect in that regard and the reverse just a bit misaligned to 12 o’clock. The surfaces are lovely and the color a totally ideal light tan-brown. No contact marks or other distractions, a small planchet flaw in one of the reverse rings lets you know it’s really a Fugio. This is among a handful of AU grade coins that top the census and certainly holds its own in that group.
