    Washington President Half Dollar, Idler Copy
    White Metal, GW-27, MS62 Prooflike

    (Circa 1860) Washington President Half Dollar, Idler Copy, MS62 Prooflike NGC. Baker-25L, Kenney-1, Miller-Pa-215D, W-15890, Musante GW-27. White metal, plain edge, 34 mm. William Idler's copy of the costly GW-22 Getz pattern. The dies were struck in silver, white metal, copper, and brass. The white metal examples are much rarer than their Baker-25M copper counterparts. We could find only one example that has appeared at auction in the last two decades, first in an April 2010 Stack's sale and later in our January 2014 FUN Signature. A brilliant and sharply struck medal with frosty motifs and flashy fields.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
