This is the most elusive die marriage of the VERMONTENSIUM <em>Guide Book </em>variety for the 1786 Vermont Copper. A golden-brown example, there are areas of considerable softness to the detail that appear to be attributable to the break up of the reverse die. Considerable boldness of strike is evident on both sides, nonetheless, and there are no mentionable blemishes apart from a few shallow planchet flaws that are as struck, some of which are associated with old, inactive verdigris.
