4 (Very Scarce). 137.3 grains. Rich, olive-brown fields, with lighter
high points. Softly struck in the centers, but nicely centered, with a

Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1385, illustrated, where it was described as follows:
"1787 CT Copper, Miller 44-W.4, Draped Bust Left, Very Fine.
128.9 grains. Rarity-4 (76-200 examples known). Dark chocolate fields with
most raised parts lighter. Some fine porosity on each side, but for the
most part free of marks. Struck a bit low on reverse so that half the date
is off the planchet. One of the nicer examples known of the variety."
