"1776" (1889-1904) Washington Before Boston Medal. Philadelphia Mint Restrike. Mahogany Bronze. 67.7 mm. Musante GW-09-US2, Julian MI-1. About Uncirculated.
Ever-popular and iconic, this is probably the finest version of the U.S. Mint-produced Washington Before Boston medals. The new dies produced by Charles E. Barber restored a more original appearance to this venerable design, and retained the appealing semi-reflective mahogany finish soon to be lost to more modern production techniques. This example is satiny and free of significant blemishes apart from a shallow scratch in the right obverse field and a few small spots around the periphery of both the obverse and reverse. Light rub is noted on the highest parts of Washington's hair, which explains our assigned grade.
