From the Norman G. Peters collection, sold by Stacks on 11/22/21, where this coin was lot #2072 and described as: "1786 New Jersey 1/2p. Maris 12-G, W-4790. Rarity-4. Date Under Plow, No Coulter, Shaggy Mane. Fine-15 (PCGS). 136.58 grains. Handsome golden-brown patina blankets satiny, generally smooth-looking surfaces. Certainly a superior example for the assigned grade, planchet voids are small in size and singularly inconspicuous, while the only readily evident marks are minor and confined to the area around the horse's snout. Hard and tight, as well, with bold Fine detail apart from isolated softness in the center of the obverse as well as at the upper right obverse and upper left reverse borders. The swelling to the shield is typical of Reverse G, while the bedraggled mane on the horse's head is readily evident and explains this variety's popular nickname. An attractive and highly collectible example of the die pairing or major type. Provenance: From the Norman G. Peters Collection." CVM to Shawn A. Yancey on 09/03/22.
