  • Category Draped Bust (Dated 1783)
682

Colonial 1783 PR 66 BN PCGS Wash. Copper Draped, PE Res

Superb Gem brown Proof . Reflective fiends with contrasting devices. PCGS has certified seven coins at this level with a mere two finer. 'Original' 1783 Draped Bust Washington tokens were most likely minted about 1820 in Birmingham, England by Thomas Ingram. In 1848 W.S. Lincoln purchased hubs and other minting equipment from the defunct Soho Mint and minted Proof restrikes in London. There were Proof restrikes minted with both engrailed and plain edges. There is a school of though among specialists that the plain edged restrikes were minted in 1850 and the engrailed as much as ten years later. A noticeable difference between originals and restrikes is the size of the date. It is large on restrikes. Lettering and punctuation also differs. Restrikes are known to be 20% or as much as 30% heavier to nearly 150 grains.
