Recent appearances:
"Extremely Fine" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, April 21, 2001, Lot 1054, where it was described as follows: "1787 CT Copper, Draped Bust Left, Miller 44-W.4, Extremely Fine.  Rarity 4 (Very Scarce). 137.3 grains. Rich, olive-brown fields, with lighter high points. Softly struck in the centers, but nicely centered, with a full date showing. B corrected from R in ETLIB. The surfaces are glossy despite a fine, micro-porosity. Nice eye appeal for this scarcer variety."

"Very Fine" (illustrated below).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid 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."
