1786 Nova Constellatio Crosby 1-A Rarity-6 PCGS Genuine, VG Details, Damage. Glossy chocolate and olive brown. No corrosion or verdigris, and the surfaces are mostly smooth. Unfortunately there is an attempted but unsuccessful piercing in the center plus a dozen or so old scratches blended into the natural toning on both sides. A planchet lamination crack right of NOVA also catches your eye. On the good side of the ledger, the date is strong and most of the legend remains clearly visible on both sides. An imperfect piece to be sure, but most of the known examples have significant problems. And the strong date is a big plus. An important opportunity to obtain a very rare colonial that is seldom offered in any grade. Listed on page 54 in the "Redbook."
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.

Realized $3,105
