Choice AU 1791 Washington Large Eagle Cent

SOLD

Details

1791 Washington Large Eagle cent. Baker-15, Breen-1206. AU-55 (PCGS). Rich lustrous chocolate brown with choice eye appeal and particularly nice surfaces for the grade. Just a few tiny scattered marks are noted, some harmless old verdigris is seen within the letters under magnification. An important type, one that served as the inspiration for Jacob Perkins of Newburyport, Massachusetts and Peter Getz of Lancaster, Pennsylvania when each made their 1792-dated Washington patterns. These circulated in America, apparently in great numbers, and a substantial percentage of those known are well-worn today. This example is particularly pleasing for the grade.
