1787 New Jersey copper 1/2p M43-d, W5225, Small Planchet Plain Shield, R1. This coin has been authenticated and grade by NGC as AU55, and it is certainly CHOICE! Soft medium brown fields overflow with abundant mint luster on both sides. Almost no trace of wear, and no evidence of circulation marks. As an added bonus, the coin is plainly double-struck with a slight offset visible on each side. This is a very common variety as far as New Jersey's go, but the choice color and surfaces along with the bold mint error certainly make this a premium example.
