Maris 56-n, W-5310 variety, Camel Head type. Considered to be Rarity-1.

A common New Jersey copper in stunningly uncommon condition with hard, smooth surfaces, choice, medium brown color and a peep of 231 year-old mint red at the reverse shield.

Aside from its technical merits, this is an unusually well-made coin, nicely struck and very well centered on a broad, defect-free planchet.  This coin was struck over a Connecticut copper (as many of these were) and some ghost-like letters of the host coin are visible in places.

Ex Spink America's June 1997 B.G. Johnson sale, lot #33.
