Recent appearances:
"Choice Extremely Fine".  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1399, illustrated, where it was described as follows: "1788 MA Cent, Period after MASSACHUSETTS, Ryder 2-B, Choice Extremely Fine.  156.0 grains. Choice, medium-tan surfaces with ample gloss to excite even the picky collector.  A faint, natural lamination flaw runs diagonally across the lower right obverse and an old, thin scratch appears on the upper right obverse. Getting real conservative, we note some minor rim bruises as well, none of which damage the otherwise attractive eye appeal of this piece."
