Lot Description
1786 Vermont Copper. Landscape. RR-6, Bressett 4-D, W-2020. Rarity-3. VERMONTENSIUM. EF-40 (PCGS). The readily recognizable "Floating Tree" variety -- the fourth tree from the viewer's left side of the mountain is suspended in mid-air. The deep chestnut-brown surfaces yield no marks of consequence other than some natural planchet fissures and microporosity that were in the flan when struck. Small obverse rim clip at 9 o'clock, rim tight to tops of VERM and through ONTENSI, reverse rim tight to tops of DE and through CIMA, that word mostly soft, rim clip affects top of S, a patch of roughened patination at that letter. The devices are bold throughout. Choice in spite of the minor shortcomings that are endemic to the series.
