The obverse periphery is diagnostic: AUCTORI:+ / +CONNEC:. This sandy, reddish-brown example is rather well struck for the type, this despite some minor die swelling near the lower-reverse border that also affects the top of the obverse portrait. Centering is also quite good, and all major features are well outlined, if not boldly so. The overall smoothness to the surfaces is particularly impressive in a lightly circulated Connecticut Copper. A nice piece.
