    (1792) Washington Born Virginia Cent, AU55
    Musante GW-33 (C), Second Reverse

    (1792) Washington Born Virginia Cent, Second Legend Reverse, Copper, Plain Edge, AU55 NGC. Baker-22 (1999), Baker-60, W-10730, Musante GW-33, R.5. Numismatists believed for many years that Baker-60 was struck in Birmingham, England, by the Westwood Mint. Dies provenanced to descendants of Jacob Perkins of Massachusetts indicate that he was the maker, though the Washington bust was copied from the 1791 cents issued by the Westwood Mint. The WASHINGTON BORN VIRGINIA obverse was used for four different copper varieties plus one rare silver issue. Baker-60 employs the GENERAL reverse and has a plain edge. Baker-60 is typically encountered well circulated; however, the present example is sharply detailed, showing little wear. Satiny luster remains in the fields, complementing the burgundy-brown patina. A small rim bump above the GE in GENERAL serves as a pedigree marker. An attractive and original example. Listed on page 84 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
