    1792 Washington Getz Small Eagle Cent Fine 12

    1792 1C Washington Getz Pattern Cent, Small Eagle, Copper Fine 12 PCGS. Baker-25. Although never adopted as an official coinage design, these popular patterns, as designed by Pennsylvanian Peter Getz, feature a classic portrait of our first president. They were minted in Harper's coachhouse on 6th Street in Philadelphia, a historic location also used for the striking of the 1792 half dismes. This example either circulated or was carried as a pocket piece for many years. An old, rather prominent obverse scratch angles across the cheek and lower lip into the field at left. Listed on page 78 of the 2006 Guide Book.
    From The Steve Glenn Collection.
