1799 Washington Funeral Urn Medal, Silver VF25 NGC. Baker-166A, R.6. Dies 1-B. Two large funeral processions were staged in early 1800 for Washington, who had died on December 14, 1799. Baker-165, distinguished by a skull and crossbones on the lower reverse, was worn by certain attendees of the Masonic ceremony on February 11. The civic procession took place on February 22, and the Baker-166 medal was worn by some of those present. A small hole at 12 o'clock is characteristic of the issue. Deeply toned in electric-blue and peach colors, which serve to subdue several moderate pinscratches. (PCGS# 787)
