    1783 Washington & Independence Cent
    PR65, Draped Bust, No Button
    Baker-3A, Silver Restrike

    1783 1C Washington & Independence Cent, Draped Bust, No Button, Silver Restrike PR65 PCGS. Baker-3A, W-10380, R.6. The proof restrikes of the Draped Bust Washington coppers are dated 1783, but were made in 1860. Varieties are known in both copper and silver, though the silver variant, here represented, is the rarest, as Rulau and Fuld estimate only 50 to 100 pieces were struck. This beautifully preserved Gem displays splashes of lavender-blue and amber-gold in the mirrored fields beneath a thin tan-gray veneer. The strike is needle-sharp overall and the eye appeal is exceptional. Population: 5 in 65, 1 finer (4/14). (NGC ID# 2B6U, PCGS# 688)
