    Superb Gem Proof 1783 Washington Cent
    Copper Restrike, Brown Surfaces, Baker-3

    1783 1C Washington & Independence Cent, Draped Bust, No Button, Copper Restrike, Engrailed Edge, Baker-3, W-10370, R.5, PR67 Brown PCGS. 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. Brick-red with subtle blue-violet and lime-green tints. Listed on page 80 of the 2013 Guide Book. Population: 4 in 67 Brown, 0 finer (4/12).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2008); Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 3/2009), lot 64. (NGC ID# 2B6T, PCGS# 685)
