From the 08/16/23 Stacks sale of the E Pluribus Unum Collection Part 4, where this coin was lot #3086 and described as: “1788 New Jersey Copper. Maris 50-f, W-5475. Rarity-3. Head Left. VF-25 (PCGS). 153.5 grains. Another lovely Maris 50-f fit for an advanced collection. Nice chocolate brown with good gloss and eye appeal. The reverse is a bit granular, but the eye appeal remains superb. The left obverse rim is a bit flat and shows some abrasions, as do some areas of the reverse rim as well. Aside from some scattered old pinscratches, toned over and trivial, this piece has no significant problems. Early Die State 2, with the bulge on the obverse just beginning and only a very tiny crack between EA of CAESAREA. This die state is unusually early. Provenance: From the E Pluribus Unum Collection.” PCGS #766268.25/47842321 with “Head Left, Maris 50-f” listed on the PCGS label. This coin realized $2,640 in that auction to CVM, and I purchased this beauty from Chris at a considerably higher price. My asking price on my website and eBay is $4,500.
