    1800 Washington Hero of Freedom Medal, MS62
    Baker-79, GW-81 (A), About Five Known in Silver

    1800 Washington Hero of Freedom Medal, Baker-79, Musante GW-81 (A), Silver MS62 NGC. 38mm. Struck by Obediah Westwood of Birmingham, England. It the smaller of two different Washington memorial medals he produced, the other being Baker-83, GW-80, the Emancipator of America medal. The present medal was struck in a variety of metals, as detailed in Munsante's reference, with five estimated extant in silver. This example is finer than either the LaRivière-Ford (AU58 with light scratches) or Norweb (VF holed) pieces. Shimmering surfaces are lightly toned with little more than a few superficial hairlines well-concealed beneath the natural patina, which deepens around the devices.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
