High-grade Connecticut coppers are notably scarce, and this particular variety is well known for lacking in quality pieces. The outstanding Choice Uncirculated specimen that was part of the Garrett collection is likely the finest, with this example and the Newman MS61 (despite its clipped planchet, Newman's piece brought $11,750) sharing CC #2 (second finest) status. In terms of attractiveness and sharpness of strike it may be unrivaled. Its surfaces are glossy and lustrous. Close examination reveals two depressions bisecting the coin's reverse, an apparent planchet flaw visible on the coin's highest points.

The CONNFC misspelling in the legend is apparently the result of using the wrong letter punch. This and other similar blunders have contributed to the popularity of collecting Connecticut coppers by die varieties throughout the years.
