Description

1792 Washington Cent, MS62 Brown
Baker-60, Washington Born Virginia

1792 1C Washington Born Virginia Cent, Inscribed Reverse MS62 Brown NGC. Baker-60, W-10730, R.6. Although John Gregory Hancock's 1791 Small Eagle and Large Eagle cents are relatively common, his "Born Virginia" Washington pieces were apparently coined in much smaller quantities. When encountered, survivors tend to be circulated and exhibit weakness on the central reverse legends. This MS62 example is far superior to the other two examples listed in the NGC Census Report, both of which are VF (11/11). It boasts a sharp, even strike and consistent dark walnut-brown toning. A tiny obverse rim nick at 3 o'clock and a faded mark in front of the nose are consistent with the grade. Listed on page 78 of the 2012 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B79, PCGS# 723)
