Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 858, illustrated, where it was described as follows:
"1787 CT Copper, Draped Bust Left, Miller 17-g.3, Very Fine. 148.4
grains. Rarity 4 (Very Scarce). Medium to dark olive-brown in color,
with decent surfaces. Tiny, tiny planchet clip from 3:00-4:00, barely
affecting the denticles. An old, shallow scrape on the second N of
CONNEC has moved some of the metal to the base of that letter. Overall,
a pleasing example of this slightly scarcer variety. - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid
