    MS63 Brown 1783 Georgivs Triumpho
    Among Finest Certified, Rare Early Die State

    1783 TOKEN Georgivs Triumpho Token MS63 Brown NGC. Baker-7, Breen-1184, R.3. A beautiful chocolate-brown piece. The obverse has several tiny mint-made planchet flaws, the reverse is smooth. From perfect dies, unusual for the issue which is almost always seen with a vertical die break from the center of the grate. As of (3/08), only of only four examples certified as Mint State by either NGC or PCGS, and the second highest graded within that short list. Unlike most Washington pieces dated in the 1780s, the Georgivs Triumpho token was actually struck during that decade. Examples were used as a host for the 1787 Maris 73-aa New Jersey coppers. The portrait resembles Washington less than another famous George from the era, King George III, perhaps because a bust or painting of Washington was not available to the engraver. Listed on page 75 of the 2008 Guide Book.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2005), lot 566, which realized $25,300.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
