I have a worn badly no date facing left variety. A metal detecting find. Just curious how many left facing coins were made.

No way to know how many were minted, there were no accurate mintage records. I believe there are only three head left varieties though. If you post a picture there may be enough to ID the variety.

There are 2 bust left Vermont issues, one dated 1786 and one dated 1787. They are both rare but the 1787 is considerably rarer. Without the date and if the coin has been in the ground, the copper planchets were not the greatest to begin with, identifying the date will be challenging. The 1787 would be the jackpot.

There are actually three, two 1786's, RR10 and RR11, and one 1787 RR15. RR15 used the same obverse as RR11 with a 1787 dated reverse.

I defer to lcutler on the varieties. Also note that the date for this coin is in the reverse below liberty rather than below the left facing obverse bust. The date is fairly large but it may still be difficult to find and make out on these old coppers.

No chance on this coin. The date is gone. The is easily a Vermont copper but beyond that it's doubtful to maybe get the variety. will try to add a picture.

Actually seeing the date isn't that important. Varieties are usually identified by position of the legends or punctuation. No guarantee, but if you can post a picture there is a chance!

Yep pretty rough! To complicate things further, it is not a Vermont, it is a Connecticut. The lettering remaining in front of the face is the TOR of AUCTORI, and I can [I think] make out the A. I can also see one of the N's of CONNEC on the other side of the bust. The reverse does not match any of the three Vermont bust left varieties either, there is actually a fair amount of detail left to determine this. The branch hand on yours is pointing at the D in INDE, on all three of the Vermont reverses it is pointing at the E or higher. I Collect Connecticuts by die variety, but unfortunately while there are three Vermont bust lefts, the number of Connecticut bust lefts is in the hundreds! No ID on this one!
