1783 Washington Token. "UNITY STATES". EF-40. A long line-like planchet lamination on the lower obverse and striations at NGTON and throughout the legends, the latter being much heavier. Dark chocolate brown, the obverse slightly porous, but handsome overall. It is well to remember that these flaws, while they take something away from the appearance of the coin, are all mint-caused, not damage caused by poor handling. The eye appeal here is unusually nice, despite the mint's shortcomings.

Realized $368
