1889 Commemorative GW

Classed as Uncirculated. Original shank.

A Linked States pattern created by an English firm for the centennial of Washington's Inauguration.

Made of heavy brass, it is thicker than the #9's and uses different script. While not as valuable as the GW's, it's also a collectors item.

Purchased from Clarence March from Maine in 1950.
