Description: 1791 Cent - Large Eagle
Gem Mint State Washington Large Eagle Cent Baker 15
1791 Washington Large Eagle Cent. Copper. Lettered Edge. Baker 15. Semi-Prooflike. Gem Brown Uncirculated.
This magnificent coin is highly glossy and sharply struck, having semi-prooflike surfaces and the 1791 date on the obverse. There is crisp detailing of Washington's hair and even his epaulet, the highest point on this coin, is extremely sharp with every tiny detail distinct. The reverse is also remarkably well struck and the surfaces are as hard and glossy as they come, being an attractive light brown color, with lots of iridescent violet and underlying luster. This major type is illustrated on page 83 of the 2017 Red Book. The last example we offered in this quality was back in our EAHA Auction, June 26, 2010, Lot 520 which sold for $3,540. We've offered many of these wonderful coins, and this ranks among the nicest to come our way.
