Recent appearances:
"Extremely Fine-40 with verdigris" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 926, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...Were it not for some scattered patches of old verdigris, this would be an exceptional example of the variety. The original surfaces are glossy, olive-brown and the high points have a hint of reddish color. The obverse has some neat clashmarks of the date above the bust."
