US Connecticut Copper  1787
US Connecticut Copper 1787

With inscriptions AUCTORI CONNEC (Authority Connecticut) and INDE ET LIB (Independence and Liberty), these old coppers are quite rare and highly sought by collectors. There are many different varieties, but only a very few well preserved specimens. A good run-down of the varieties appears on CoinAuctionsHelp.

Requester Gomez's coin is shown in our small picture to the right. It is heavily worn and somewhat discolored. This coin is about the lowest collectible grade and is worth about $30 US dollars. Better preserved specimens are worth quite a bit more. Very, very approximately:

worn: $30 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $300
well preserved: $1000

The coin in our picture is an average circulated specimen. If you have a nice-looking example of this coin, be sure to seek out a knowledgeable collector or professional coin dealer for an in-person inspection.
