(1785) The Bar Copper Breen-1145 F12. Sharpness VF30 or so but moderately corroded with traces of shallow verdigris in some of the protected areas. Slightly glossy medium chocolate brown and olive. The USA design (copied from the design of the buttons on the uniforms of the Continental soldiers) is clear and the 13 bars (representing the original 13 colonies) are bold. The small spur down from the right end of the second bar (from the top) is visible. Most likely rescued from soil. An acceptable example of this very popular colonial copper. Listed on page 74 in the "Redbook." Weight 68.1 grains.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.

Realized $1,898
