1787 Connecticut, Miller 37.1-cc.1, “ET LIR”, overstruck. VF SOLD
A Draped Bust Left variety with a lot going on! Not only is this a much scarcer variety but there is also a nice amount of the undertype still present, particularly between CONNEC and the rim on the obverse as well as in the field in front of Brittania’s leg on the reverse. Underweight counterfeit British halfpennies were frequently used as planchets for state coppers. A coin worthy of further study!
