1788 Vermont Ryder-29 Rarity-5 VF20. Five points sharper but there is a dull dent at the base of the M in VERMON plus a half dozen small contact marks elsewhere on the obverse. The reverse, however, is smooth and nearly choice. Glossy chocolate and light olive brown mixed with darker olive brown on the obverse. The massive die crack down the face to the rim at the R in AUCTORI is strong. Struck slightly off center to K-4.5 leaving much of ET LIB and some of AUCTORI off the planchet. The date is clear, although the bottom of the second 8 is affected by a shallow planchet flake. Certainly not perfect but still quite nice for this very tough variety. Listed on page 72 in the "Redbook." Weight 102.1 grains.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
Ex Richard Picker-Dr. Robert I. Hinkley 3/1993-unknown-American Numismatic Rarities/Stack's 6/23/2004:2038 (lot ticket included).
