(1737) Higley Copper Broad Axe Reverse Freidus 3.2-C PCGS VF Details


Click On Pictures To Zoom

A very rare and desirable colonial type, missing from the majority of colonial collections. This Broad Axe example shows wonderful detail for a Higley copper, with a boldly struck deer and axe, as well as most of the legends and the denomination bold and well struck.

The surfaces are actually not bad for a Higley, with dark brown color and light even roughness seen on both sides. There are some groupings of light digs on the obverse and reverse, and a very small engraved letter I on the reverse but none dramatically alter the details present.

Recent auction results for Higley coppers have been very strong, especially on examples showing strong details. A G4 graded example sold for almost $55,000 in 2014, and an AG Details Holed and Plugged example brought $23,500 in 2015. Both of those examples show FAR less detail than the present coin displays, showing how strong the market currently is for these elusive coppers.

A unique opportunity for the collector to add this famous type coin to their collection while also not having to settle for a very weakly struck, low grade example.
