1783 Washington token. Copper restrike, engrailed edge. PCGS graded Proof 67 Brown. Gorgeous bluish-brown iridescent toning on both sides. An early die state that lacks the reverse peripheral crack between 2 and 5 o'clock. The popularity of Washingtonia in the mid 19th century encouraged British entrepreneur W. S. Lincoln to produce his own well-made copy of Baker-2. Precisely struck and virtually flawless. This Type is listed in A Guide Book of United States Coins, all editions going back to the very beginning in the late 1940s. Pop 4; none finer (PCGS # 685) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.

Realized $2,875
