    1792 Washington Born Virginia Cent
    Inscribed Reverse, Baker-60, MS62 Brown

    1792 1C Washington Born Virginia Cent, Inscribed Reverse MS62 Brown NGC. Baker-60, W-10730, R.5. Although John Gregory Hancock's 1791 Small Eagle and Large Eagle cents are relatively common, his "Born Virginia" Washington pieces were apparently coined in much smaller quantities. When encountered, survivors tend to be circulated and exhibit weakness on the central reverse legends. NGC has certified just three pieces as of (12/13), and two are in VF grades. The present piece is easily the finest in an NGC holder. It boasts a sharp, even strike and consistent dark walnut-brown toning. A tiny obverse rim nick at 3 o'clock and a faded mark in front of the nose are consistent with the grade. Listed on page 82 of the 2014 Guide Book.
    Ex: Liberty Collection, Part Three (Heritage, 5/2008), lot 2046, which realized $27,600. (NGC ID# 2B79, PCGS# 723)
