|Title||1783 Georgivs Triumpho Token, BN|
|Service Catalog #||664|
1783 COPPER Georgivs Triumpho Token, Baker-7, W-10100, Musante GW-54, R.3, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. While many of the Washington tokens issued from the 1780s to the 1830s never circulated, the Georgivs Triumpho pieces did, as this Very Fine piece attests. Medium-brown toning and an even strike provide good eye appeal, and post-strike marks are few. The reverse shows the distinctive die crack emanating from the top of the bars and running along the figure's side that is seen on most examples. Listed on page 81 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
