F [Ooooold Holder]

Baker-34, W-11150 variety, Plain Edge.  Considered to be Rarity-3.

Here we have a perfectly nice Washington piece which was intentionally struck in shallow relief so as to simulate wear and aid acceptance in commerce.

But the real story is that it is housed in this ancient-looking seemingly home-made wooden slab (complete with hand-typed slab label) which appears to date to the first part of the 20th century but which looks remarkably similar in layout, size and configuration to a brand new PCGS holder.

First we've ever seen, or heard about, possibly unique, extremely charming and likely to win any contest to see who has the oldest slab.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
