1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right, Ryder 29, R.5, VF+.

Ex Q. David Bowers 1970 - Dr. Robert I. Hinkley, Bowers & Merena 11/29/2001, lot 2413 - Jack Wadlington - Tony Terranova.

104.8 grains. One of the classic Vermont rarities, immediately recognizable by its heavy obverse die break. This is a well-defined and pleasing example with excellent light brown color and no immediately noticeable flaws. Careful inspection reveals a slight bend to the planchet, but there is no evident damage that caused it. The detail is strong for the variety and nicely centered on each side. The shallowly cut obverse die, together with the die break cause the detail on the portrait to always come weak. This is a superior example overall, probably among the best ten of the variety, and worthy of careful consideration.
