    Do you have any other pictures without so much dirt on the reverse? It is covering a lot of the lettering. I am not completely certain, but it looks like 13-J to me. If that is correct it is a better variety, R6.

    That's a good one for Don in South Jersey. He's really good with ID's and will add to his survey. Don in SJ

    Your 1786 Maris 13-J had been entered in my database back in February, somehow I never replied on your Today's Finds post, just do not remember the circumstances. It is still the only one of that variety in the survey, so a strong Rarity 6. I have no idea on value due to its corroded condition......

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
