    Washington Funeral Medal, AU Details
    Uniface Gold Wafer, Baker-169

    (1799) Medal Washington Funeral Medal, Gold, Baker-169, Musante GW-75 -- Graffiti -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Uniface gold wafer, 25 x 31 mm. Among the various varieties by Massachusetts engraver Jacob Perkins commemorating the death of George Washington. The Baker-165 through Baker-167 medals are nearly always encountered with a small hole near 12 o'clock, since they were intended to be worn at a Washington funeral service. The rare Baker-169 is less often holed, but Perkins may have perforated some pieces prior to issue, such as lot 3954 in our September 2011 Long Beach Signature, as well as the present piece. This example shows a small, squarish hole near 12 o'clock, on the field above the wreath and below the E in THE. The field near the Washington bust has graffiti in the form of illegible cursive letters. Otherwise, an attractive wheat-gold example with minimal wear and good eye appeal.
    From The Warshaw Family Collection, Part IV.
