looks to me like it may be a Connecticut - draped bust left -coin circa 1787. Corroded but kinda neat.

There is a bisecting die crack through the coin slightly through the I in Auctori ending around 5:00 on the obverse, I wasn't able to match it up to any variety as my Conn. Copper library is rather sparse, I have all the New Jersey and Vermont books, New York and Conn. are still on my list of to gets. Even so worn it's quite possible to ID it I think, worth doing for the fun and the knowledge, plus if it turns out to be a rare variety all the better for you!

I've started by going through what info there is at the Notre Dame Colonial Coin site https://coins.nd.edu/ but as I mentioned no match yet.

Closet one I've found is this:
https://coins.nd.edu/conn/1787/Conn...ex07.obv.jpg But I believe the bisecting crack is not quite the same and the photo on the site is of an earlier die state.

Following up on this one, someone is interested in a trade with me at another forum, for a book on Sheldon Variety Classification. Is there a premium for this error, should it exist?
