1788 New Jersey Maris 50-f Rarity-3 Head Left Type F12. Sharpness VF20 with light roughness covering all but the highpoints. No contact marks. Traces of shallow verdigris are nestled into a couple of the most-protected places. Rather glossy medium chocolate brown. The obverse is sharper than the reverse, as usual for this variety, and the eye appeal is decent in spite of the imperfect surfaces. The date is strong and the legends are clear. The most common of the three "Head Left" varieties. Listed on page 70 in the "Redbook." Weight 132.3 grains.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
Ex Chris Schenkel collection sale, Bowers & Merena 11/12/1990:5472 (lot ticket included).

Realized $805
