    1783 COPPER Washington & Independence Cent, Draped Bust, No Button, Copper Restrike, Plain Edge PR65 Brown PCGS. Baker-3C. The well-made 19th century restrike by British coin dealer W.J. Taylor, based on the conditionally rare Baker-2. The Small 3 in the date distinguishes the Taylor restrike from the W.S. Lincoln restrike (Baker-3). The present fully struck golden-brown Gem exhibits beautiful ocean-blue, lilac-red, and forest-green undertones when it is rotated beneath a light. A magnificent example of the variety. Population: 10 in 65 Brown, 10 finer (7/17).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2008), lot 2982.
