Colonial ND AU 50 PCGS Wash Succ Medal Sm Size Plain Ed
Good luster with a warm golden-gray tone overall. Baker-267A, Plain Edge, Rarity - 4. Success tokens appear to have been minted in brass, copper and white metal using only a single set of dies. Currently there is a controversy as to whether these tokens are associated with Washington during the second inauguration and possibly date from the period circa 1792-1795 or whether they are mid Nineteenth century gaming pieces. Artistic style would suggest they are the latter. The obverse depicts a bust right of Washington, while the reverse presents an image of the Eye of Providence with fifteen stars and long rays. The center reverse is typically softly struck and this is thought to be because of a shallow engraved die. PCGS has certified seven coins at this level with a mere nine finer.
