1787 Fugio Copper, Unattributed, Good, well worn, but clean, good design detail

1787 Fugio Copper. Newman Unknown. Good or so overall, an EXTREMELY well-worn coin, proof that this issue DID circulate, and for quite some time. Traces of the legends can be seen, but just traces, and the first three digits of the date are visible. The sundial is completely outlined, while the sun face and rays above are worn flat. The reverse rings are nearly complete. This one will probably forever remain unattributed, as there just isn't enough meat there to tell what the variety is - but it is still definitely a Fugio. Darker brown, the surfaces with a light roughness that isn't that bad and the expected marks from circulation, including some faint obverse scratches. Perhaps the single-most truly worn Fugio copper known. This will certainly be one of the least expensive Fugio coppers out there, and will be a most affordable example of the type! This general type is pictured and listed on Page 89 of the 2017 edition of The Redbook [which has had massive pricing updates, and is now FAR more accurate than it ever has been, even though it resulted in lowering of prices for many common type coins!] (Pointed Rays type), where Good coins are priced at $150.
