1786 Vermont Copper. RR-7, W-2025. URS-8. VERMONTENSIUM. VF-35 (PCGS). Deep golden-tan with a decided olive cast. Nicely centered on the obverse, faint old horizontal pinscratches noted below the mountains, die swelling at plow, no other marks present. Reverse rim to tops of CIMA ST, all other details present and bold, including the all-seeing eye which is sharp considering the time spent in circulation.

To see this one is to appreciate it fully.
