1788 Vermont Ryder-21 Rarity-5 VF25. Glossy chocolate brown with lighter brown toning on the highpoints. Excellent eye appeal for a Vermont in this grade, but a glass reveals extremely fine roughness in the fields and protected areas. No verdigris. The only notable marks are a dull, very shallow dog-legged scratch from the E in ET to the waist of the seated figure, a tiny rim bruise left of that E, and another under the date. Well centered with only a few elements tight to the edge of the planchet. The date and legends are easily readable. MDS with a dull, strong die crack arcing from the first 8 into the field under the outstretched arm of the seated figure and a wide die crack off the bust tip. Not perfect but still quite nice for this tough variety. See page 72 in the "Redbook." Weight 120.0 grains.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
Ex Early American History Auctions 10/21/2006:704.

Realized $604
