Wondering any information and a possible variety/value for this token I found a few days ago

    As has been said, this is a Connecticut Copper from 1787. Connecticut coppers were made from 1785-1788. This one is especially interesting because it is boldly double struck, and that increases the value significantly. Because of the environmental damage, the value is greatly decreased by that, but because of the bold error, the value increases multiples.

    I have not attributed the variety which also can make an enormous difference on these. Hopefully someone here can identify the variety, which can be difficult when not all legends and main points are visible, but there is certainly enough here to identify the variety I suspect: CT coppers are not my area of expertise unfortunately.

    Very cool find!

    I believe it is a 36-l.1. A little tough with the overstrike covering half the details, but I think that's it. It is currently listed as a rarity 5, which translates out to 46-60 estimated known.
