Fine-12 (illustrated above).  Ex - Ira S. Reed, July 21, 1944 for $5.00 - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "Benson Collection, Part I", February 16, 2001, Lot 64 at $1,092.00, where it was unattributed and described as follows: "1787 Connecticut Copper. Draped bust facing left, "AUCTOBI" variety. Fine-12. Dark olive in color in the fields, with lighter brown devices on both sides. Well struck, with a full date and a pleasing coin for the grade. There is a very minor scratch on the reverse bust, and another down along the scepter on the obverse. A curious spelling blunder, which adds much character to these early issues."
