Baker-47B, Julian MI-1 variety, struck in Paris circa 1789.
A classic early American medal commissioned for George Washington for his achievement in routing the British from Boston in March of 1776, with a portrait of Washington on the obverse, and a depiction of Washington and his troops overlooking Boston from Dorchester Heights on the reverse.
Washington was awarded the sole gold example of this type which now resides in the Boston Public Library where your author thrillingly viewed it during the 2010 ANA Convention held just down the road.
And while that gold one is of incalculable value and presumably permanently impounded, this original striking in bronze produced from those same dies is available right here on our list.
This specimen is very choice for the assigned grade, with nice chocolate brown color, lovely surfaces and excellent eye appeal.
