PCGS VF-35.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1395, illustrated, where it was described as follows: "1787 MA Cent, Arrows in Left Talon, Ryder 3-G, PCGS graded VF-35.  The surfaces on this piece are relatively clean but have a "dry" appearance, meaning that it might benefit from a proper oiling.  The obverse shows the light die rust that is typical of the variety.  All in all, a pleasing and attractive example of this variety."
