1788 New Jersey Copper
Running Fox, Maris 77-dd
AU58 [PCGS] Earle-Ryder-Ford
Maris 77-dd variety, considered to be Rarity-4.
A stellar example of this popular Redbook type.
The color is a lovely choice chocolate brown, just a shade darker on the reverse. The strike is strong, and the all important Running Fox on the left reverse is especially bold and clear.
There are just a couple of trivial marks here and there, none of which significantly detract and all of which connote an absolutely original, untampered with coin.
