Item Description

1783 Nova Constellatio copper. Crosby 1-A. Rarity-4. Large U.S., Pointed Rays. EF-40 (NGC). Even light brown with some subtle granularity at central obverse visible under magnified scrutiny. An attractive example of this distinctive variety within the Nova Constellatio series, showing die work unlike that found on other varieties. The US at central obverse and the date below are a little soft, as often seen, but other design elements are nice and bold. Some inconsequential surface dirt persists in the devices. A collectible specimen of this important early American type.
