1787 New Jersey Maris 40-b Rarity-5+ AG3. Many of the details are sharper than the assigned grade but the planchet is covered with moderate roughness. The date is weak but readable with some effort as are most of the legends. Slightly glossy steel brown and chocolate with darker chocolate toning covering the protected areas. A splash of very dark chocolate brown lacquer or similar substance covers the horse's face. Far from perfect but it's a very tough variety in the New Jersey series. Struck with the reverse rotated 35 degrees CW relative to a head-to-foot die orientation. This type is listed on page 70 of the "Redbook." Weight 148.5 grains.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.

Realized $1,783
