Newman 1-A, W-1130 variety, with the HB legend error (instead of the correct HIB).  Called Rarity-7 in recent auctions.

One of the rare original issues in this series definitively known to have been struck in 1688 and missing from the Roper, Picker, Garrett, Norweb and Oechsner sales, as well as many other important Colonial offerings through the years.

This piece can be traced to the Partrick Collection, acquired by him in Stack’s September 1993 auction, lot #882, where it was described as “Uncirculated, with mint lustre around the obverse rim and the equestrian figure, across most of the reverse.

And this lovely, lustrous piece is the second finest example we’ve seen, with only the Ford specimen (last handled by us several years ago and now graded MS62 by PCGS) graded higher.

$17,500
