Beautiful Full Red Robert Lovett Jr. Washington Storecard

SOLD

Details

(ca. 1860) Robert Lovett Jr. Washington storecard token. Copper. Baker-556A, Miller PA 342. MS-65 RB PL (NGC). Remarkably reflective full mint color, barely mellowed in a few areas of the obverse to violet or blue, with nary a trace of brown to be seen. A spectacular example, clearly cherished since the moment it was minted. Robert Lovett Jr.'s creations of this era largely went directly into collector hands, thus high grades are the norm, but the preservation of this piece stands apart. Dated (1840-60) by NGC, this piece was almost certainly struck between the last few years of the 1850s and the first few of the 1860s, when interest in Washingtoniana was at a fevered pitch. As noted at the superb Lovett Tokens and Medals website, the obverse of this piece is based on the reverse of the Washington Before Boston medal, making this piece of interest to Comitia Americana collectors as well.
