1787 Connecticut Copper, M33.28-Z.11, W3765, Mailed Bust Left with SNIPE NOSE obverse break, R5+. Authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF40, and this is the nicest example I have ever handled or even seen. This coin was part of the Robert M. Martin collection just sold by Stacks in the November 2019 Baltimore auctions, lot #5222, where it was described as: "123.4 grains. A full 30mm across, this coin not only looks wide but is wide! The obverse die is in about as late a die state as the Snipe Nose comes, the die fully bisected from rim to rim, the denticles very worn and failing in places, and the die clearly and acutely sunken along the inner perimeter of the denticles. Iridescent dark brown surfaces show smooth wear, very faint natural texture in the fields, and a trio of small natural planchet depressions near the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions of the rim. Comparable to the Oechsner EF coin, slightly inferior to the Perkins-SLT and 1975 Pine Tree EAC sale coins, this coin ranks among the finest survivors of the die pairing and was plucked by Robert from a Heritage sale that had a random handful of decent Colonial coins. Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Heritage’s sale of September 22, 2010, lot 3029." Absolutely a GREAT example; compare this to lot 5224 which is the more common Snipe Nose variety at R4+ that sold for $6,300 in PCGS AU55! Makes this coin look like a bargain!
