USA, copper "fugio cent," 1787, 4 cinquefoils, STATES UNITED, pointed rays, encapsulated PCGS MS64BN (old green tag). Newman 12-X (rarity R-3). Popular early federal coinage, so named for the word FUGIO ("I fly"), designed by Benjamin Franklin to circulate with the value of a cert (but no denomination stated on the coin), this specimen clearly high grade (muted luster on fields) but hard to assess and appreciate through the old plastic, the diagnostic die-clashing on obverse and die-crack from rim at 6 o'clock on the reverse clear nonetheless, and also clearly undamaged and even in color (light chocolate brown).
