Comparisons from major collections

John Ford and Robert Martin did not have this variety at all.
Twin Leaf VF-20.
Finer than the Hessberg specimen, Perkins:479 (which was called “High Condition Census”), and both Oechsner coins.
It is also nicer than the Taylor/Partrick coin, which was called “EF-40” and deemed finer than the 1975 EAC, ANS and Yale University examples. Nothing comes close in any of the major collections of Connecticut Coppers sold over the past 50+ years.

125.27 grains. High Condition Census and likely the finest known. Attractive medium brown with steely luster in the fields and traces of faded red in some of the obverse recesses. On the reverse, there is quite a bit more original red making for a very handsome example. A natural fissure passes through the back of the effigy’s head, while the reverse exhibits only trivial natural flaws that are barely noticed, let alone distracting. This is a true no friction MS Connecticut. Both sides are nicely aligned on the flan with only small parts of the date digits lost to the rim. A coin from an old New England Collection, likely off the market for more than a century, and therefore new to the Census. Rarity 5 (approx. 31-75 known in all grades). There are two varieties and die marriages of the Miller 43 obv. The more common is the 43.1-Y and the far rarer being this variety 43.2-X.4. CONNFC variety Page 66 Red book

Who Is Eugene T Yotka Rare Coins?

I opened my first rare coin shop at the in 1970 at when I was 13 years old. I was passionate to learn all I could about United States rare coins. I was truly drawn to the beauty of design as well as the historical significance of coins and coin collecting. I especially loved the comradery I felt when among other coin collectors and dealers. Over the pursuant 25 years (1970-1995) I was blessed to handle some extremely fine and valuable rare coins and collections, with many individual coins valued in the six-figure range. As the years went on however, I got caught up in money making aspect of dealing with coins and virtually lost all sense of that which had originally drawn me to the hobby. Then an amazing thing happened to me. In 1996 I was called into full time Christian ministry. I became a youth pastor at a local church in New Jersey and then went to seminary in Florida, where I served as a fulltime pastor in the local church for 12 years. Although I have continued to collect coins (primarily New Jersey Colonials) over the past several years I thought that my buying and selling days were over. Recently however, the Lord has reminded me of the beauty, history and community that is part of true coin collecting. Thus, I have decided to reestablish a business in rare coins, now applying all I have learned in numismatics and as a Christian to the buying and selling of collectable coins. My hope is to help others discover the joy of coin collecting and I feel that Coin Cube Trading is a great place for this to occur. As strange as it may sound to some, I wish to allow myself to be open to God’s Love and to allow that Love to be part of my numismatics endeavors. May God bless you all.
