George Washington 1st President Coin Token 1789-1797
Note: Please scroll down to see both large (magnified) photos, which show the front and back of the coin.
You are bidding "as is" on one (1) coin, token, medal, or medallion, commemorating George Washington, the first President of the United States. I'm not sure how old it is, but I've had it stored in a small mint tin for more than 30 years. Is it original? A reproduction? Honestly, I don't know. It might be an original commemorative funeral coin that someone wore after Washington's death, hence the hole at the top. Or it could be a reproduction of the same thing. The coin, which measures about 1 1/10" diameter x 2 mm thick, is identical on both sides (see front and back in pictures below) and reads as follows: "1789 1ST PRESIDENT U.S.A. 1797 GEORGE WASHINGTON." I'm not sure which type of metal it's made of, but it looks as if it originally had some sort of gold or bronze coating. It shows significant wear and has years of dirt on it. I did not want to clean it in case it's more valuable with its patina. I cannot guarantee that this coin is valuable in any way, thus you're buying "as is," and there are no refunds, so please keep this in mind before bidding.
