(1792) Washington Born Virginia Copper, unique Lettered Edge, Baker 60A, GW-33, F.

An extremely important piece, the one and only Washington Born Virginia copper with a lettered edge. A fairly recent discovery and has been added to the Red Book as of the 2020 edition, making it one of only 50 unique coins listed there, over half of which are impounded in institutional collections. A charming coin condition-wise, with glossy olive brown surfaces and no corrosion or major marks. The two central dates of the reverse were re-engraved in a neat and very old style, probably circa 1800, and this adds some character to the coin if anything. Overall an attractive and exciting piece, obviously a special opportunity for the Washingtonia specialist.
