"Very Fine" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, April 21, 2001, Lot 1055, where it was described as follows: "1788 CT Copper, Mailed Bust Left, Miller 7-E, Choice Very Fine or better.  115.5 grains. Rarity 6 (Very Rare). This R of AUCTORI on this rare variety is actually a modified P, with a light "tail" added to make it look like a P. This example is olive-brown in color, the surfaces are decent, and any flaws were probably in the planchet before the coin was struck. This has always been a rare and popular variety and we expect a lot of spirited bidding for this nice example." - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1388, illustrated.
