I continue my “tour” of the Guide Book of United States Coins. This week I am starting on page 48 so you can follow along. The subject is Higley coppers, not often called Granby coppers to my knowledge, but listed that way in the Guide Book. These are among the most interesting of all early American issues. They were made in copper, circa 1737 to 1739 by Dr. Samuel Higley of Granby, Connecticut, who held a degree in medicine from Yale College.
