    Rare 1792 Born Virginia Cent
    Inscribed Reverse, Baker-60, VF35

    1792 1C Washington Born Virginia Cent, Inscribed Reverse VF35 PCGS. Baker-60, R.6. All Born Virginia cents are rare, and are typically encountered in Fine to VF grades. The legends describe key dates in Washington's life through 1789, omitting the 1759 marriage to Martha that made him among the wealthiest men in the colonies. The present deep brown example has consistently struck legends and moderate wear on the portrait. The reverse has a small edge nick at 2 o'clock. Listed on page 78 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 35, 8 finer (1/08).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B79, PCGS# 723)
