Description: Vermont Coppers
Choice Near Mint "VERMONTENSIUM" Vermont Copper
1786 VT Copper. "Condition Census" Landscape Type. "VERMONTENSIUM" Legend. Ryder-7. Bressett 5-E. Whitman W-2025. Choice About Mint State.
117.9 grns. Whitman Rarity URS-8 (65 to 124 known). This coin is of full copper weight, being sharply struck in most areas with some typical die weakness on its reverse as made. It is struck on a far above average planchet that is hard and glossy with excellent overall eye appeal. Only a couple of planchet flaws exist, the rims remain sharp and the natural surfaces are hard and smooth. The Green Mountains, Rising Sun and Pine Trees are distinct and clearly seen. The "1786" date is fully upon the sharp looking planchet. The reverse legends are clear and the central eye sharp, having just some faint cabinet friction. This coin is both Condition Census and quite spectacular for its "VERMONTENSIUM" Legend Landscape Type. In collecting Colonial and/or Vermont Coppers, this coin is a true delight and a certain highlight for any collection. Please Note: This choice coin was removed from a PCGS graded AU-53 holder by the consignor, and the Tag accompanies this item.
