1787 Fugio Cent, STATES UNITED, 4 Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays, MS64 Brown NGC. N. 12-X, W-6820, R.3. A lovely mahogany-brown Choice Fugio cent that retains traces of initial orange-red color in its obverse recesses. Contact is absent, though close evaluation reveals a flan flake atop the 8 in the date. Struck several degrees off center toward 4:30, though the rings are complete. The vertical reverse crack at 12 o'clock identifies the familiar Newcomb 'X' reverse, associated with high-grade distributions from the Bank of New York holdings. Listed on page 99 of the 2019 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.HID05401242017
