|Title||1783 Washington Unity States Cent, BN|
|Service Catalog #||689|
1783 1C Washington Unity States Cent, Baker-1, Vlack 27-W, W-10130, Musante GW-104, R.1, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 210?. A mid-grade circulated example of these intriguing tokens. Neil Musante considers these pieces to be more closely related to the English evasion issues of the late 1790s than to other series. The reverse design is clearly intended to imitate the U.S. one cent reverse of 1794-1807. The surfaces of this coin are typical, the issue having been struck on poorly produced planchets showing pitting and other marks. Listed on page 82 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
