Superb Gem Proof Silver Restrike Baker-3A
1783 Washington Draped Bust 'Cent'
Single Finest Certified by PCGS

1783 1C Washington & Independence Cent, Draped Bust, Silver Restrike PR67 PCGS. Baker-3A, Breen-1195. The W.S. Lincoln "No Button, Large 3" restrike in silver, produced during the mid-19th century from copy dies with thick legends. These well-made restrikes are collectible in copper, but examples struck in silver are very scarce. They are often confused with the W.J. Taylor restrikes (Baker-3C) of the same era, identified by slender lettering and a Small 3 in the date.
The present piece is the single finest certified by PCGS by a margin of two grades, as it has been for several years. The pearl-gray devices show moderate contrast with the nearly untoned fields. Fully struck and virtually perfect. Listed on page 76 of the 2009 Guide Book.
Ex: Fairchild Family Trust Collection (Ira & Larry Goldberg, 5/2001), lot 74.
(PCGS# 688)
