1788 Massachusetts Copper Cent, Ryder 12-I, Period After Massachusetts, R4-. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as VG8, and it's a smooth attractive example with nice medium tan brown color. The obverse is barely VG8 with some weakness at COMMON, while the reverse is fully F12 with a particularly bold eagle and date. This is one of the Stout Indian varieties, and a very nice low-grade example. Ex-Ebay 2012; Furnace Run collection. REDUCED FROM $399 TO $299.
