    1792 Washington Getz Cent, AU58
    Ornamented Edge, Copper, Musante GW-22 (J)

    1792 CENT Washington Getz Pattern Cent, Small Eagle, Copper, AU58 NGC. Baker-25, Breen-1357, W-10785, Musante GW-22 (J), Low R.7. Ornamented Edge, Wide flan, 35 mm., 180.6 grains. This is coin number 11 in George Fuld's Condition Census of the copper Getz patterns. The extensive die rust throughout the constellation shows it to be a late-state example. It is the third finest of 12 Getz copper patterns having the ornamented edge device. Of those, the British Museum has a Gem Mint State coin from the Sarah Sophia Banks Collection. Another Mint State piece, from the Garrett Collection, originated with the Professor Charles E. Anthon Collection in the 19th century. The present example from the Donald G. Partrick Collection is next in the Condition Census. Both sides are rich and lovely olive-brown with traces of faded orange mint color. This piece is struck on a wide planchet with bold and complete border details on both sides.

    The Ford cataloger noted that no accurate count of copper circles and squares edge coins existed. However, such a count does exist today, thanks to the research of the late George Fuld; his book, The Washington Pattern Coinage of Peter Getz, was published five years after the Ford sale where the present piece appeared. The 12 known examples with this edge device are on wide planchets that measure between 34 and 36 mm. Five of the 12 known are held in museum collections, leaving just seven available for collectors. This is an extraordinary opportunity to acquire a desirable rarity.
    Ex: John J. Ford, Jr. (Stack's, 5/2004), lot 32; Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.
