Description Undated MEDAL Washington Success Medal, Large Size, Plain Edge MS64 NGC. Baker-265A, W-10905, R.5. 75.2 grains. Struck in brass, possibly circa 1793 in conjunction with George Washington's second inauguration, as suggested by W.E. Woodward (1864 McCoy collection sale, lot 236), and J. Doyle Dewitt (A Century of Campaign Buttons, 1789-1889, published 1959). The presence of 15 stars (or rosettes) on the reverse could substantiate this theory, as Kentucky joined the union as the 15th state in June, 1792. This well-detailed piece is the single finest certified (4/14), with substantial yellow-gold luster illuminating the well-preserved surfaces. A prominent obverse die crack from 11 to 3 o'clock confirms the variety. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,812.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
