From Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", June 5-7, 2000, Lot 22, where it was described as follows:

"1787 Connecticut Miller 378-HH R6 PCGS XF-40 Medium brown and chocolate with lots of underlying mint luster. In fact, there is very little actual wear with just a bit of friction on the highpoints. Struck slightly off center toward the top of the obverse, the reverse off to the bottom causing all except the top of the date to be off the planchet. Poorly struck at the bottom of the obverse and top of the reverse leaving some of the natural planchet roughness intact in those areas. Everything else is nice and smooth. Overall a very nice example of this rare Connecticut copper."
