(Circa 1864) George Washington, Sprite and Sea Serpent, MS65 Brown NGC. Baker-633B, Musante GW-228. Bronze, 28 mm, plain edge. The obverse is from a Key & Co. Philadelphia store card (Baker-550). The reverse is nearly identical to a George H. Lovett New York store card (Miller-NY-486) but with the date 1860 added to the exergue. The present variety was one of many mules struck using the Baker-550 obverse die. GW-228 was struck for collectors, and the few pieces encountered are nice. This semiprooflike Gem is well struck, but the face of the sprite is incompletely brought up as always for GW-228. The golden-brown surfaces are unmarked and exhibit only a couple of pinpoint flecks. Ex: Donald G. Partrick.

Really enjoying the reverse design and marveling at how our portrayal of Washington has changed over the years :)
