"Details of Extremely Fine" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 856, illustrated, where it was described as follows: "1787 CT Copper, Mailed Bust Left, Miller 10-E, Details of Extremely Fine.  153.0 grains. Rarity 6 (Very Rare). Dark, reddish-brown in color, with a slightly dull obverse but a nice and glossy reverse. According to Breen, this reverse was ground down, so there is not much detail to begin with, but there is enough here to make it finer than both the Taylor:2416 (VG, rough) and the Pine Tree/EAC:93 (VG-Fine, black and slightly granular). This piece also features a really advanced state of the obverse crack mentioned in both of the aforementioned catalogues, but not quite as advanced as on Perkins:273. This is easily one of the finest examples known of the variety!" - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1375, illustrated.
