1787 Vermont Ryder-14 Rarity-3 VF30. Nice glossy chocolate and darker olive brown with smooth surfaces. No corrosion or verdigris. There is a very fine planchet fissure bisecting the obverse from K-11 to K-5, and this fissure has been lightly smoothed down so it is essentially invisible to the unaided eye. A similar narrow planchet fissure reaches from the rim just before the face of the seated figure down to her knee where it fades away. A couple more short fissures show near the dentils at K-7.5 on the reverse. Otherwise this piece is choice. Struck slightly off center to K-3 leaving the upper half of AUCTORI and ET LIB off the planchet. The date and remainder of the legends are strong. See page 72 in the "Redbook." Weight 120.6 grains.
Estimated Value $600-UP.
