USA (struck in Birmingham, England), one cent Washington President, 1791, small eagle, encapsulated NGC MS 62 BN. KM-Tn57; Baker-16. Although the Washington cents are not officially struck US coins, this private issue is commonly categorized as a post-colonial U.S. issue. As much as President Washington disliked the idea of having his portrait on circulating coinage, his popularity led to several types of coins and tokens baring his image. This piece is well-struck and detailed with minimal marks, slightly grainy surfaces, brown toning with some blue hues around "ONE CENT." NGC #4427760-001.
