    Important MS62 Brown Engrailed Edge
    1783 Small Military Bust Washington Cent

    1783 1C Washington & Independence Cent, Small Military Bust, Engrailed Edge MS62 Brown PCGS. Baker-4B, R.3. The scarcer edge variety of the Small Military Bust type, which is in turn more elusive than the Large Military Bust. An unusually high grade example, PCGS has encapsulated only one other Small Military Bust in Mint State, as MS62 Brown. This well struck piece has light olive-brown color in the centers and moderately deeper medium brown and steel-blue peripheral toning. A faint fingerprint near the bust truncation does not distract. The usual obverse die state with numerous bold cracks along the legends. Listed on page 75 of the 2008 Guide Book.
