Lot closed - Winning bid:$2,400

1787 Nova Eborac with Large Head Breen-985 Rarity-6+ F15. Choice glossy chocolate brown with lighter steel brown toning on the devices offering excellent eye appeal for the grade. There is a trace of extremely fine granularity in the fields and protected areas but the devices are smooth. No verdigris. The only mark is sharp, small dig in the field under the I in VIRT before the seated figure. The field before the portrait is swollen, as usual. Struck very slightly off center to K-7 leaving a few letters of the legend tight to the edge, but the date is strong and the legends are easily readable. A very nice example of the rare Large Head type. Listed on page 68 in the "Redbook." Weight 148.2 grains.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
