    Borderline Uncirculated Washington Funeral Urn Medal

    Washington Funeral Urn Medal AU58 NGC. B-166C, R.6. Die Variant 3-C2. Two large funeral processions were staged in early 1800 for Washington, who had died on December 14, 1799. Baker-165, distinguished by a skull and crossbones on the lower reverse, was worn by certain attendees of the masonic ceremony on February 11. The civic procession took place on February 22, and the Baker-166 medal was worn by some of those present. A small hole at 12 o'clock is characteristic of the issue. This white metal example retains extensive original silver-gray color, while the exposed fields have lightly toned in tan-gray hues. Washington's cheek, jaw, and forehead have faint rub, but the surfaces are unabraded save for a minor mark on the 3 in 1732.
