    1792 Washington Getz Small Eagle Pattern Cent

    1792 1C Washington Getz Pattern Cent, Small Eagle, Copper XF40 PCGS. Baker-25. The die for this well executed pattern Cent was designed by Peter Getz of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The coins were actually struck in Harper's coachhouse on 6th Street in Philadelphia. This historic structure housed the U.S. Mint's machinery in 1792 before the first Mint building was occupied. This building was also the location for the striking of the 1792 half dismes. These pieces were most likely struck in late September or early October of 1792, before the Mint's presses arrived from England. This piece shows lovely chocolate-brown patina. The only planchet flaw of any note is an angling depression from the first T in STATES down through star 1 and beyond. The out-of-Mint flaws that are worthy of note are a diagonal mark across Washington's temple and three tiny rim nicks, two at the 6 o'clock position and one at 7 o'clock.(#921)
