"PCGS EF-40 (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 859, where it was described as follows: "1787 CT Copper, Draped Bust Left, Miller 33.8-Z.13, PCGS graded Extremely Fine-40.  116.8 grains. Rarity-5 (Rare). Gorgeous, even light tan surfaces. This piece shows the exact same, slightly off-center strike as on the Taylor: 2514 example (it seems that most examples of this variety have identical centering)! Both sides show the flatness of strike that also seems to be characteristic of this die marriage, but the details on this piece are definitely slightly better than those on the Taylor coin, which was cited as being perhaps the second best example. Perhaps somewhat conservatively graded by PCGS, their not being familiar with the strike characteristics of this variety. A great coin for the advanced variety collector, being a very scarce Rarity-5."

"Fine."  The example listed as Lot 943 in Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s December 7, 2002 Mail Bid Sale was actually a 33.1-Z.13.
