    Baker-15 1791 Washington Large Eagle Cent, MS63

    1791 1C Washington Large Eagle Cent MS63 Brown PCGS. Baker-15. This boldly struck and semi-prooflike example is principally medium brown and steel blue, although glimpses of mint red reside in protected areas of the reverse. The obverse has a few tiny and unimportant gray spots. Teenaged engraver John Gregory Hancock of the Westwood Mint struck the Large Eagle and Small Eagle cents in an attempt to secure a Federal coinage contract. Instead, the United States established its own mint in 1793. Listed on page 77 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 22 in 63, 25 finer (1/08).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B6Z, PCGS# 702)
