    Hello all,

    I was wondering if this 1788 Vermont copper coin has a variety to it? I tried looking online and was unsuccessful finding varieties and how to distinguish them. Also it does have quite a few scratch marks on the reverse, Will this drop value significantly? I’ve seen a few sold on eBay for a few hundred that are barely visible and some have corrosion damage. Would these inflicted scratches be worse on the sale? I guess it comes down to what variety it is if any or just the original coin. It seems all the ones sold on eBay have a variety and rarity To them so I am only to assume this one may have one as well?

    Thank you in advance and you all rock! F0FE9812-6986-4517-AC94-EB5315CB5FD3.png 75093F0A-4555-45EB-8019-3A53445B2B72.png FC0166AD-9F40-4058-B592-7F50E46B0F75.png 53B64B93-8A8B-417A-9AFA-A703B94D3D44.png

    Lol well you found it the RR-16 R-1. Now my question is, is it worth what it should be if it were graded in VF due to the reverse scratches

    Yes I left out Bressett 15-S but it’s rarity is 1, I believe this is the “normal” variety?

    No I did not get it yet looking at around 160$ but wondering if it’s worth it do to scratches on the obverse!

    If it was my money I'd wait for a better coin. I'd rather have a problem free coin in my collection even it costs more. I wouldn't spend $150 on that coin with all those scratches on it. Just my opinion. :)

    I say there are better ones out there but their like up to $300 more . It depends on your wallet too . I might wait as well . I mean how long can it take to save $150 more for a better one . Maybe graded as well . I'm rambling here. Sorry .

    I'd wait. For comparison, I paid less then $100 for each of these (yes, even the Fugio), and a couple additional ones I've picked up since I made this display.

    Bargains are out there if you're patient, and know where to look....


    As for the coin in the OP, I'd offer $50-60, and explain how the graffiti affects the value immensely.
