Breen-1125 variety, with the Inimica Tyrannis Americana obverse, and the  Confederatio Small Circle reverse.  Considered to be Rarity-7. 

Simply one of the coolest coins in the entire colonial series.

Based on a design put forth by Thomas Jefferson, this issue bears the distinctive image of Diana the Hunter (symbolic of freedom) trampling the English crown, surrounded by the legend INIMICA TYRANNIS AMERICANA (America Opposed to Tyranny).  The reverse mimics a sketch done by Jefferson depicting stars representing the original colonies with the legend CONFEDERATIO (Union) above and the 1785 date below. 

For whatever reason, most of the few surviving examples of this type have some impairment or other, with edge issues, stains, repairs, tooling and/or some level of surface pitting.

And while this one is not perfect, it does exhibit good detail, very appealing golden brown color and considerably less pitting than the recent Archangel coin sold at Stack’s-Bowers last November.

Ex Stack’s November 1955 sale of the Farish Baldenhofer Collection, lot #44; earlier Bangs & Co.’s June 1882 sale of the Charles I. Bushnell Collection, lot #882.

SOLD
