"EF-40" (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Coin Sale", May 27-29, 2001, Lot 1018, plated, where it was described as follows: "1787 Connecticut Maris 25-b Rarity-3 EF40. Choice glossy medium brown with chocolate brown toning in the protected areas. There are a few tiny planchet chips on the chin and a light rim bruise at the bust tip; otherwise this piece is flawless. The obverse is struck very slightly off center to K-8, the reverse a similar amount to K-6 leaving the bottom third of the date off the planchet. A choice, very attractive Connecticut copper. Weight 142.6 grains."
