    Unknown connecticut state copper! Miller 33.42-t.2.

    It's confirmed. The coin was peer reviewed in hand at the Whitman Baltimore Coin Show today. I found a unique and hitherto unknown die marriage of a Connecticut State Copper. I found a Miller 33.42-T.2. The 33.42 obverse is extremely rare in its own right but only known to exist with a Z.2 reverse until I dug this one! Thanks Don Hartman for your help and noticing it. Your help was invaluable. Thanks Jeff Rock for your help. Thanks to Danny LaMontagne for the invite!Name:  254420632_409406277348727_7100116782733845480_n.jpg

    I was told by one expert that it must not have been in circulation long because it has VF to XF details. Three of the experts asked me if it was for sale. All three independently valued the coin at $20K but stated that if the "billionaire" who collected Connecticut Coppers hadn't passed away last year that it would have brought $50K - $75K.

    Not much else can be added to this incredible find but on a side note I think it should be added what contribution detecting has added to the numismatic field. This example would probably top the list. Huge congrats and please post any updates to this great find. Thx for posting WD
