Lustrous George Washington Double Head Cent Baker-6
Undated (1783) George Washington Cent. Double Head. Baker-6. W-1120 variety. PCGS graded About Uncirculated-58.
A popular major Washingtonia coinage type and an intriguing issue bearing a slightly different but very similar portraits of Revolutionary War General George Washington displayed on the obverse and reverse. Perhaps too conservatively graded, having the eye appeal of Choice Uncirculated. This coin itself is of premium quality, being a nice original chocolate-brown with crisp details highlighted by its full underlying flashy mint luster.
