    The dies for this ever-popular and alluring piece were originally engraved by John Reich in 1807. Half a century later, a new reverse die was created using hubs taken from the original, and a series of restrikes and off-metal strikes were produced over the decade of the 1860's. A keystone example within the field of Washingtoniana.

     

    Note: There are a few marks and scuffs which can be seen in the images; these are on the slab rather than the medal itself.
