1783 Nova Constellation Copper. Pointed rays, small U.S. PCGS graded MS-62 Brown. Examination with a glass will note some minor surface corrosion on both sides, which caused the planchet to flake. Medium brown in color and generally free of handling marks or other problems. Sharply impressed and always popular for its decidedly American themes, this CONSTELLATIO NOVA or The New Constellation, surrounded by thirteen stripes and thirteen stars (the new American flag elements as passed by the Second Continental Congress). These were ordered from New York and designed by William Wyon, III and struck at the Birmingham Mint.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,250.
No pedigree information available, but likely purchased in the mid 1940s.

Realized $2,875
