what about countermarked ones? More value?
I don't see any countermarkings. Countermarkings actually bring the value down.
I have a few with countermarks as well....similar in condition
No to me. I don't like most of them, but some collectors admire specific counterstamps.
@johnmilton said the value depends on the specific variety. I'm only a novice when it comes to IDing colonials and I don't have access to my reference books, but your pics may be too dark. These are the standard references for CT colonials
Most coins have the dies aligned so that the designs are in the proper position when you turn the coin over, head over heals, or on the horizonal axis. Most medals are aligned so that the designs are in the proper position when you turn the piece by the vertical axis.
If a coin is out of the proper alignment, it is said that the dies are rotated. In the old days, and I’m an old collector, most people were not that thrilled with this. Now it seems that some collectors prize such pieces.
Sadly, I am not an expert on Connecticut coppers, so I can’t say if your coin is unusual. Given the primitive conditions under which these coins were made, it is certainly possible.
Off the top of my head, I would say that it does not add much to the value. But the experts should chime in since I’m not an expert on these coins.
Not at all unusual. On some varieties it is the norm.
