Undated MEDAL Washington Success Medal, Large Size, Plain Edge, Baker-265A, W-10905, Musante GW-41, R.7 -- Bent -- NGC Details. VF. First obverse. Die alignment: 210?. A moderately worn specimen with a slight bend justifying the designation. Struck in brass, these were frequently issued with a silver wash that tones to a darker gray as seen here. This was likely someone's pocket-piece, seeing that it would not have circulated as money. Struck from a middle state of the obverse die, with a crack extending from 11 o'clock across Washington's nose to the rim at G. Listed on page 86 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
