1787 Fugio Copper, STATES UNITED, Newman 6-W, PCGS XF45, choice, ex Ford.

Ex Lyman Low 9/9/1909, lot 622 - Hillyer Ryder - F.C.C. Boyd Estate - John J. Ford, Jr. Stack’s 10/14/2003, lot 243.

A sharp, nicely centered, and problem-free example, among the nicest seen of this variety. Barely worn, the sharpness and surface quality could rightly be called AU. Indeed, this is quite similar to the Newman sale specimen (though better centered) which was graded AU50. There are a handful of choice XF/borderline AU examples known, including the aforementioned Newman piece and the two Ford examples offered on this list. The only piece notably finer is the Norweb coin, a choice AU. The surfaces of the present coin are a pleasing, medium olive brown and are naturally glossy. Remarkably free from planchet flaws with just a few tiny ones to be found on the reverse. Earlier die state than normally seen showing the always present reverse crack but only a light crack starting from the lower obverse rim. Obverse plated in the original Newman monograph.
