1787 CENT Fugio Cent, STATES UNITED, 4 Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays, MS66 Brown NGC. N. 13-X, W-6855, R.2. The Bank of New York hoard yielded more than 700 examples of Newman-13-X Fugio cents -- some in high grades -- although at the Premium Gem level no Fugio cent is readily available, regardless of variety. This example exhibits glossy, reddish-brown surfaces struck from clashed dies as usually seen. Satin luster glistens from both sides, with a slender radial die crack on the reverse extending upward just to the right of 6 o'clock. Sharply struck centers show only nominal weakness at the lower obverse and upper reverse dentils. The coin is exceptionally free of marks and abrasions, struck on a good planchet, and shows minimal Mint-made defects on the smooth, hard flan. Listed on page 99 of the 2019 Guide Book. Census: 4 in 66 Brown, 0 finer (8/18). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.HID05401242017
