|Service Catalog #||692|
Undated 1C Washington Double Head Cent, Baker-6, Vlack 28-Y, W-11200, Musante GW-110, R.2, AU58 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. An English production of the 1820s, the Washington Double Head Cents are closely linked to the Washington & Independence pieces. While not a scarce issue, Bowers in his Colonial Encyclopedia notes that in Mint State these pieces are "a notable rarity." This example shows only the slightest bit of circulation, and offers a lot of value, with smooth, attractive surfaces and strong detail. Listed on page 82 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
