    Description

    George Washington: The Iconic 1790 Manly Medal. One of the most important medals issued during Washington's life time. The "Manly Medal" was widely advertised and sold in America, unlike most medallic art which was aimed at a very limited audience. The coin has been encapsulated (slabbed) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with the following wording: "1790 GW-10 Bronze/Manly Medal, 1st Obverse/ MS 62." Diameter measures 48mm. The first obverse die was used to strike this select example and grading is in Mint State at 62. Rare piece and in excellent condition.
