Lot 414
1787 Fugio Cent Newman 8-X R3 PCGS graded MS63 Brown, CAC Approved. A STATES UNITED variety. Choice lustrous medium steel brown with a couple subtle puffs of slightly darker steel brown toning on both sides. Hints of underlying faded mint color remain visible on the obverse and this piece has superior eye appeal. No planchet flaws or other defects that are so often seen on these old coppers; essentially flawless. Later die state with a massive die crack at the bottom of the obverse that has created a shelf in the die face. Almost certainly an example from the famous Bank of New York Hoard of 1641 mint state Fugio Cents, and 189 of those were of this die variety. High grade Fugio Cents from that hoard frequently are available in the marketplace, but this is an especially nice one. A great type coin. Listed on page 89 in the "Redbook." Estimate Value $4,000 - UP

Lot 415
1787 Fugio Cent Newman 9-T Rarity-6 ANACS graded G6. A STATES UNITED variety. Slightly glossy medium brown and light chocolate with darker olive brown toning in protected areas. The two-tone appearance accents the devices and enhances the eye appeal. The highpoints are smooth but microscopic roughness covers the fields and protected areas on both sides. No verdigris or notable contact marks. The date and legends are easily readable except for BUSINESS, which is only partially visible. (BUSINESS is usually weak on this variety regardless of the sharpness grade.) The die crack from the dentils to ring 9 is clear. An acceptable example of this very rare variety. Estimate Value $500 - UP
