PCGS AU-50 (illustrated above). Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid
Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 884, where it was described as follows:
"1787 Nova Eborac Copper, Seated Figure Facing Left, PCGS graded
About Uncirculated-50. This coin is destined to belong in a
quality collection of coins having superior eye appeal. The planchet and
surfaces are above average, being quite hard and smooth with excellent,
sharp details, specially the definition of the hair and reverse figure.
In fact, all of the devices are sharp and quite clear. An amazing fact
is that the date, usually found very weak and often missing completely,
is full and clear to the naked eye! Simply a real "crowd
pleaser." Overall superior to the Guide Book plate specimen found
on the bottom of page 48 for this type. A top quality specimen worthy of
a strong premium."
