1791 Washington Cent Electrotype, 19th Century, High Grade RARE 1011-13
Electrotype of the 1891 George Washington, Large Eagle “Cent” – if you are viewing this listing you should know exactly what this is (if you do not, I would suggest looking elsewhere, as this is NOT an original “coin”). Breen-1206, Baker-15, Fuld WA. Dalton & Hamer Middlesex 1049 as an original. A well executed, presumably 19th Century example, shells from a fairly high grade circulated example although it displays a significant die crack through the Shield on the Eagle. James McCallum (info available on WorthPoint), however is not the same exact piece. The maker went to the trouble of lettering the edge as well; the last image shows a portion of “America” where the seam can plainly be seen at the base of the letters. Presumably a pure Copper shell with lead fill – my regrets I do not immediately have a weight for this. Interesting supposition is that this may be the work of S. Black of New York, well known producer of Electros and Washington pieces. The period they operated in was also the high point of interest in Washington Numismatica. Unlikely to ever be confused with an original as the weight, “ring” and obvious seam give it away, however an interesting piece of early American Numismatic history and showmanship perhaps?
